  • The family of a Shawnee woman missing for more than a month is extremely worried about her safety but are still holding out hope that she’ll be found safe.
    Samantha Weaver, 27, was last seen June 15 in Shawnee.
    Shawnee police have been investigating her disappearance, but members of her family also have been busy hanging fliers around town and even going door-to-door in hopes of finding someone who may have seen her.
    Weaver’s sister, Christy Busch, said they are holding on to hope while still trying to deal with the fact that she’s missing important family events, from Father’s Day to her youngest child’s birthday.
    “It doesn’t get any easier,” she said. “Her entire family is worried sick.”
    Weaver has two children, ages 2 and 6, Busch said, who both miss their mother and don’t understand why she’s not around.
    Weaver missed her youngest daughter’s birthday on July 15, which is something Busch believes her sister would never intentionally do.
    “She thought the world of her girls — she loves her babies,” Busch said.
    According to the family, Weaver reportedly went with friends to a casino in Norman June 14, but the group came back to Shawnee.
    Weaver reportedly sent a text message to her children’s father in Shawnee June 15 saying she was on her way to his home to pick up the children, but she never showed up.
    Although Busch said they are holding out hope Weaver will be found, there’s more worry with each passing day.
    Shawnee police detectives have conducted interviews and have checked several addresses in the search for Weaver, including the search of two properties in Pottawatomie County.
    Anyone with information about Weaver or this case can call Crimestoppers, 405-273-0989 or Shawnee police at 273-2121.
