Oklahoma investigators search for body of missing 4-year-old girl


CYRIL, Oklahoma (TBEN) — An effort to locate a missing 4-year-old Oklahoma girl, who authorities believe was killed by a janitor, has turned into a search for her remains, officials said Monday.

The search for Athena Brownfield, who has been missing since last week, is now being considered a “salvage operation,” the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said in a press release.

Ivon Adams, 36, was arrested Thursday in Phoenix and awaits extradition to Oklahoma. According to the OSBI, he is charged with first-degree murder and child neglect.

Alysia Adams, 31, was arrested in Oklahoma and faces two counts of child neglect. The OSBI said she is related to the sisters.

Prison records also do not list lawyers to comment on the charges against them.

Areas of Caddo County, where Cyril is located, are being searched for Athena’s remains, the OSBI said Monday. The agency asked the public not to search for Athena’s remains, saying people could potentially trespass or potentially contaminate evidence.
