The sheriff's office says they deployed their tactical tracking unit to search the park with their K9. They haven’t found signs of either man.

There were several stickers from park security on the car so they’re trying to put together a timeline for how long the car has been there.

On Wednesday, family members said the two men were seen eating at a cafe in Purcell around 6:30 Friday night.

The sheriff's office says they contacted the restaurant which did not corroborate the same information about the two men visiting Friday night.

Family members say Selby's mother, 80-year-old Glenda Parton went to search for her son in Turley on Monday night and hasn't been seen since.

The Pryor Creek Police Department issued a Silver Alert for Parton.

Deputies say her car, a red Kia Rio, was found on the side of Highway 75 near 56th Street North on Tuesday afternoon.
