The investigation into a missing service technician last seen in Tulsa more than a week ago continues but police say there’s nothing new to report in the case.
“We are following up leads as they come in,” said Capt. Rich Shea with the Broken Arrow Police Department.
Authorities released an advisory regarding Justin Cobb, 34, of Broken Arrow on Tuesday. Cobb, a five-year employee of Mullin Services, is an air conditioning technician who was last seen in the area of 51st Street and Peoria Avenue at 4:30 p.m. Aug. 10, Broken Arrow police said. Cobb, who’d recently experienced heat-related health issues, completed several service calls in Tulsa on Aug. 10 and did not return home.
His red work van was found in a rural, wooded area east of Haskell near Okmulgee County Road 310 late Tuesday, Shea said. A laptop computer and Cobb’s wallet were undisturbed, and police found no sign of a struggle, he said.
Okmulgee County sheriff’s deputies searched the area, but the Broken Arrow Police Department remains the primary agency in the case, said Deputy Mark Conklin.
Police described Cobb as white with hazel eyes and a shaved head. Court records say he is 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs about 190 pounds.
Anyone with information about Cobb can call Detective Pat O’Brien at the Broken Arrow Police Department at 918-259-8400.
