MUSKOGEE - Loved ones of missing Muskogee woman,Kristyn Richerson, are continuing their search.

"She was just one of the most generous people or is one of the most generous people I’ve known," Julie Pendley, Director of Bridging the Gap Search Team, said.

"She’s not a person to just disappear like this," said Melissa Fair, Richerson's close friend.

Richerson has been missing since May 25.

Because of her love for playing drums, friends gave her the nickname “Krash.”

"We did a lot of stuff together and went to Fleetwood Mac concerts," Fair said.

Fair and Richerson planned to attend Rocklahoma in Pryor before she disappeared.

"She wanted to go see Halestorm," Fair said. "She wanted to go see Lzzy Hale, that’s her girl. I knew she wouldn’t miss it. When she didn’t show up I knew something was wrong."

There’s been no sign since.

"She hasn’t been using her cards, not accessing her money," said Pendley.

Fair contacted Pendley with Bridging the Gap for help after they received a tip that lead them to the Fort Gibson Dam.

"People start to talk and tips start to come out and we got this one and felt that it was worth a look.

Family, friends and a team from Oklahoma City, set out to clear a large wooded section by the dam Saturday, but nothing turned up.  

"It’s possibly rumored. It’s nothing confirmed, but at this point, you know," Pendley said. "It’s been almost three months and the family’s desperate, so we’re going to be checking out everything."

Pendley and Fair are asking the public to please continue to pass around the flyers and hit the share button when her picture comes across Facebook.
They say just taking a second of your time could mean the difference in breaking the case.
