    1. Bobby, Sherilyn, and their daughter Madyson lived in Eufaula, Oklahoma at the the time of their disappearance.

    2. The Jamisons were last seen by a man who lived in the mountains in South Eastern Oklahoma.

    3. The first major discovery in the case occurred on October 16, eight days after the family had last been seen.

    4. Investigators discovered a number of things inside of the truck.

    5. Bobby's phone found in the truck contained a photo of his daughter Madyson.

    6. The GPS revealed that the family had been farther up a hill nearby where the truck was found.

    7. Despite having their belongings, the case went cold and the search for the Jamison family called off. There wasn't a discovery until four years later, on November 16, 2013.

    8. This led to a new search, which led to new findings.

    9. The medical examiner declared that the cause and manner of death were unknown.

    10. An odd wrinkle in the case is some security footage taken outside of the Jamison home.

    11. In the footage, the couple's movements were described as "trancelike."

    12. One theory of what happened, is that the Jamison family simply got lost in the woods, dying of hypothermia and exposure.

    13. A second theory is that it was a murder-suicide scenario.

    14. There's a third theory that the family was murdered by Bobby's 67-year-old father, Bob Dean Jamison.

    15. There are a couple more theories that involve a cult, witches, a satanic bible, and drugs.
