Bethany, Oklahoma – The Bethany Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in locating Russel Hubbard, a 10-year-old boy who has been reported missing. Russel was expected to return home from Western Oaks Elementary School at 3:30 p.m. today but has not yet arrived. Concerned parents contacted the police at 4:30 p.m., prompting a search operation to locate him. Russel was last seen wearing a teal blue shirt, navy shorts, and carrying a dark blue backpack. Any information regarding his whereabouts should be reported to the Bethany Police Department at (405) 789-2323.

In another unfolding incident, the fiancé of a pregnant woman, Lauren Barnes, has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder. Eric K. Phan turned himself in at his attorney’s office following a news conference announcing an arrest warrant for him, as confirmed by Bethany Police Chief Neal Troutman. Lauren Barnes, who is five months pregnant, went missing on Friday night. The arrest warrant for Phan is in connection with her disappearance, based on information gathered during the investigation.

Lauren Barnes, 20, had reportedly informed her family that she was meeting the father of her child at Eldon Lyon Park on the evening she disappeared. Her vehicle was discovered at the park on Sunday afternoon, but she has not been heard from since. During police questioning, Phan claimed he had gone to the park to discuss the pregnancy with Barnes but did not encounter her before leaving.

It was further revealed that Phan expressed doubt about being the child’s father during his conversation with the police. The community rallied together, with approximately 300 volunteers converging at Bethany City Hall to assist in the search for Barnes. Given the scarcity of leads in her disappearance, law enforcement officers decided to conduct an extensive search of the area.
