  • The family of a Shawnee woman have been busy hanging missing posters around Shawnee in hopes someone has seen her while police also are investigating the disappearance.
    Samantha “Sam” Weaver, 27, was last seen June 15 in Shawnee.
    Her mother, Leona Dohren, traveled here from Nebraska and she and other family members, including Weaver’s sister, have been searching for her on their own.
    Weaver has two children, ages 2 and 6, and they both miss their mother, Dohren said.
    “She would not have walked off and left them,” Leona said.
    Weaver reportedly went with friends to a casino in Norman June 14, but the group came back to Shawnee. Weaver sent a text message to her children’s father in Shawnee on June 15, Dohren said. That message said she was on her way to pick up the children, but she never showed up.
    Shawnee police detectives have been working the case and reported Tuesday that they have checked several addresses in the search for Weaver but have found nothing.
    They’ve also searched two properties in Pottawatomie County, Detective Ronnie Wilson said, but have found no evidence of any foul play.
    The family, concerned about no news in the investigation, has placed hundred of fliers around Shawnee.
    The family is especially concerned, Dohren said, as Weaver didn’t call her father or stepfather on Father’s Day.
    So far, police have interviewed about a dozen people as part of the probe but are seeking further tips in the case.
    Anyone with information can call Crimestoppers, 405-273-0989 or Shawnee police at 273-2121.
