Details of Disappearance Samuels was last seen leaving her pickup truck and getting into another vehicle, a GMC or Chevrolet flatbed pickup truck, outside her apartment at the Cherry Hill apartment complex in the 700 block of west 49th Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma on February 17, 1993. She appeared reluctant to get into the vehicle.
The truck was driven by an unidentified Caucasian male with brown hair and a mustache, wearing a baseball cap. He drove away after Samuels got inside it. She has never been heard from again. At 10:30 p.m. the day after her disappearance, her dark blue 1988 GMC extended cab pickup truck was found at an apartment complex in the 4800 block of south Jackson Avenue.
Samuels may have been taken against her will. She resided with her husband and two children in Glenpool, a suburb of Tulsa, in 1993. She left her children in the care of their grandparents at 11:00 a.m. the day of her disappearance.
She said she had a job interview but didn't say what kind of job it was for or where the interview would take place. She was apparently carrying a large sum of cash at the time of her disappearance.
Samuels and her husband were involved with cocaine in 1993. Her parents describe her as a responsible mother who wouldn't have abandoned her son and daughter. She disappeared just a few days before her daughter's birthday. Foul play is suspected in her case. Both Glenpool and Tulsa police are investigating.
