The Ozark Police Dept. has contacted the Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office for assistance in solving a crime that occurred somewhere in Sequoyah County on the night of Tuesday, May 26. Reports state that at approximately 8 p.m. an unidentified male individual was driving west on Interstate 40 somewhere between Muldrow and Sallisaw when he was abducted and his car was stolen. He was driving a 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser with a business logo wrap on it (shown above). According to the victim, the check engine light of his vehicle came on and he pulled to the side of the interstate and raised the hood of the car. According to authorities a pickup containing two male individuals pulled in behind his car. One subject pulled a gun on the victim, took his keys and forced him into the pickup driven by the suspect. The victim stated that he was blindfolded and driven east on I-40 and eventually dumped out. He stated that it was dark and storming at the time so he sought cover under a rock ledge until Wednesday morning at which time he walked through a wooded area and eventually reached the town of Ozark. The victim's car was found earlier today on a county road near Ozark, according to Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart. Police are still searching for the two suspects. No description is available.
