OSBI helping in search missing Broken Arrow man

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Nearly three months after a Broken Arrow man vanished, Justin Cobbs' family remain without answers.

"We are going to keep looking until he's brought home, one way or another," said cousin Kandi Payne.

Payne says she thinks about Cobb every day, praying for his return.

Cobb was last seen August 10 after finishing heat and air calls for Mullin Service.

Five days later, his work van was found in a remote area of Okmulgee County near Haskell, his clothes, cellphone and wallet still inside.

A search of the area turned up no sign of Cobb, and there has been no credit or bank activity from any of Cobb's accounts since his disappearance.

"There have been a few tips that have come in, but unfortunately those tips haven't panned out," said Broken Arrow police Cpl. Leon Calhoun.

The department has requested additional resources from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation in their search, Calhoun said.

Payne says it only gets harder as time goes by for her family to hold on to the hope that Justin will be found safe. She says he would never leave his loved ones intentionally.

"He didn't do it on his own. That's for sure," Payne said. "We all believe that. We all have our own thoughts, our own suspicions. But whoever did this, if they could just bring him home, that's all we want."

A donor has pledged $15,000 for information that leads to an arrest in the case. Normally rewards are paid out by the Crime Commission. But in this case it would be paid by the donor.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
