Missing woman found in LA

Robin Buckley

An Ada woman who has been missing since mid-November has turned up alive and well in Los Angeles.

An LAPD officer made contact with Ada resident Robin N. Buckley Nov. 29 at the North Hollywood Amelia Earhart Regional Library, said Lisa Bratcher, public information director for the city of Ada.

“She stated she had food and shelter, was fine and would not answer any other questions,” Bratcher said Monday in an email to The Ada News. “The officer had no reason to believe she was in duress.”

Bratcher said Ada police did not have any additional information about the case.

Robin, a 35-year-old high-functioning woman with autism, was last seen in Ada the morning of Nov. 14. Her mother, Sherry Buckley, told authorities that a Patty Wagon shuttle had picked Robin up that morning at her house and taken her to Pauls Valley.

The Pauls Valley Police Department and an Oklahoma City-based search and rescue team assisted Ada police in the search for Robin.
