Published on December 27, 2019

The Oro Valley Police Department (OVPD) is assisting the Bartlesville Police Department in Oklahoma with a missing person investigation.

On December 7, 2019, Steven Brashear (age 66) was reported leaving Bartlesville, Oklahoma to Arizona with another male in a gray Audi Q5 SUV with Oklahoma temporary plates. The investigation revealed Brashear may have arrived in the Tucson area late afternoon on December 8, 2019. It is reported he went to a restaurant near the Tucson Mall. Brashear was allegedly picked up in a separate vehicle by an unknown person and has not been seen or heard from since. The Bartlesville Police Department pinged Brashear’s cell phone and it was reported to be within a three mile radius of Oracle Road and Hardy Road.

A search of the area was unsuccessful for Brashear or his phone.  The family has reported the lack of contact with Brashear is highly unusual. It was also reported Brashear had made suicidal statements. Brashear is described as 5’6 tall, 165 pounds with green eyes. Anyone with information on Brashear’s whereabouts is asked to contact OVPD at (520) 229-4900 or 88-CRIME.
