CRIME STOPPERS ALERT: Bipolar Tulsa woman, April McCaslin, vanishes without a trace

TULSA - The pictures and memories are all April McCaslin's family has left.

"She was very athletic. She liked to ride a bicycle. She ran," said Tom McCaslin, April's father.

But the gifted athlete also faced some challenges.  April was Bipolar.

"She could be extremely nice or she could be argumentative," said McCaslin.

A personality that may have lead to her doom.  

Her father says April moved from house to house, living with several different people. He believes she rubbed one of them the wrong way.

"She made a statement over the phone and said they're messing with me.  And I didn't know where she was," said McCaslin.

That's the last time he spoke with his daughter.

In April 2012, April vanished.
"She just disappeared," he said.

It's something April has done before, but this time her father says it feels different.

Tulsa police tried to track her money trail since she vanished police say someone attempted to use her credit card only once at a Tulsa business.  Unfortunately, that didn't create any new leads.

"By the time we found out, there wasn't any video that we could go back and pull," said Officer Jill Roberson, Tulsa Police Department spokeswoman.

Before she disappeared, April loved jogging on Tulsa's river trails but there's been no sign of her there either.

"For her to just disappear like she did is a real concern for us," said Roberson.

Tulsa police interviewed people April lived with and also checked with mental health facilities throughout the region -- all with no luck.
