Oklahoma police: US search for missing teens ends with the discovery of seven bodies

During the search for two missing adolescents, seven bodies were discovered on a property in Henryetta, a small rural community in Oklahoma.

Ivy Webster, 14, and Brittany Brewer, 16, whom police were searching for, are believed to be among the dead. In addition, the authorities found the body of Jesse McFadden, a registered sexual offender and convicted felon who was traveling with the girls at the time of their disappearance. The police report does not indicate what caused the person to pass away. 

Janette Mayo, 59, of Westville, Oklahoma, told sources that the other four victims were her daughter Holly Guess, 35, and her grandchildren Michael James Mayo, 15, Rylee Elizabeth Allen, 17, and Tiffany Dore Guess, 13. The other four bodies have not been publicly identified by local authorities. 

The sisters were last seen traveling in a white Chevrolet pickup with Jesse L. McFadden at 1:30 a.m. on Monday in Henryetta, according to a missing-persons alert issued by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Ms. Mayo stated that the sheriff's office informed her. She mentioned that her family was unaware of McFadden's criminal history until recent months. Mr. McFadden, age 39, is a registered sexual offender and a rapist who was scheduled to stand trial in Muskogee County on multiple charges, including child pornography and soliciting sexual conduct or communication with a juvenile via technology, on Monday. She told the outlet that he lied to her daughter and convinced her it was all a mistake.

According to reports, they were acquaintances with Holly Guess and spent the weekend with her family. Monday morning, authorities executed a search warrant at the residence of McFadden, who neglected to appear in court. In 2017, he was scheduled to stand trial for soliciting a minor and possessing child pornography.

Okmulgee County Sheriff Eddy Rice believes that Ivy and Brittany were located during the search, but the state medical examiner must validate their identities. Mr. Rice mentioned that their hearts go out to the friends and families, classmates, and everyone else.

Nathan Brewer, the father of Brittany, told the local news that he was shocked. "I'm confused. I am truly confused. As the end of the school year approaches, she will not be there. That is, she has disappeared," he explained. Although I have five children, she was like my companion. Brittany was a gregarious person and was chosen to represent Miss Henrietta at the Miss National Miss pageant in Tulsa in July. Unfortunately, she will not be able to play the part now as she's dead, said Nathan Brewer. 

Monday night, at a vigil, Mr. Brewer told the gathering that it's every parent's worst nightmare. The Henryetta Public Schools mourned the loss of several pupils via a social media post. Monday's kindergarten graduation has been postponed until further notice, and students will receive bereavement counseling and have access to mental health professionals.

Two fundraising pages in memory of Ivy and Brittany have been created to assist with funeral costs and provide financial support to the families.
