TONKAWA, Oklahoma – 

Law officers are searching for a woman last seen on Sept. 4 in Tonkawa, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday.

Cathy Ann James, 60, was last heard from by her sister in Tonkawa. Her sister reported her missing on Sept. 15 to the Tonkawa Police Department.

James is not a Tonkawa resident but is from Oklahoma City,  according to Tonkawa Police Cheif Nick Payne.

Payne said officers responded to a report of a female who entered a Tonkawa residence two different times thinking she was in Muskogee.

Payne said she was evaluated by mental health authorities and didn’t meet the criteria and was released.

James’ white Dodge Charger was found abandoned on Interstate 35 at mile marker 179, about three miles north of the Stillwater exit.

James was last seen wearing an orange shirt with a Nike emblem on it and black sweat pants.

Anyone with information about James’ whereabouts is asked to call the OSBI at 800-522-8017 or email [email protected].
