Police Searching for 4 Oklahoma Men Who Perished on a Bike Ride


Four Oklahoma men went for a bike ride on Sunday. Authorities said they have not heard from them since.

After their close friends left at 8 p.m. on Sunday, their families reported them missing Monday. Police said that their phones went straight to voice mail and calls to their cell phones led to the police reporting that they were still in contact with each other.

Okmulgee’s police chief, located 40 miles away from Tulsa said he has never witnessed a case in which four people have disappeared at the same time.

“I can’t make sense of the actual set of circumstances because it is so unusual,”Joe Prentice, chief of the police told reporters in the area. 

“At this point, the evidence tells me I have four missing adults. I have no evidence there’s any violence involved at this point, we always consider that a possibility in any missing persons case and we’re not discounting that possibility,” Prentice said, but investigators have not identified any person of interest, he added.

The missing men were identified as Mark Chastain, 32; Billy Chastain, 30; Mike Sparks, 32; and Alex Stevens, 29.

“Someone out there knows something. I don’t care if it’s good or bad please just come forward. These men have families,” Mark Chastain’s wife, Jessica, told a local station.

According to police, the men were seen at a gas station and two salvage yards. Prentice claimed that one of them lost his cellphone battery or was cut off at one junkyard.

According to the chief, investigators received reports that the men were being found, but they could not confirm them.

Officers began to collect surveillance footage and track GPS data on Friday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Okmulgee Police Department at 918-756-3511.
