Oakley Carlson Voices for Justice

    • True Crime

Before Oakley Carlson turned one, she was taken out of the care of her biological parents Jordan Bowers and Andrew Carlson, and placed with foster parents, Jamie Jo and Erik Hiles. They instantly fell in love with her, and over the next two years or so, they are overjoyed to care for her and watch her grow. They see her first steps, hear her first words, and watch her develop into a happy, confident, well-adjusted toddler.
The plan for Oakley from The Washington State Department of Children, Youth and Families, or DCYF, was adoption, presumably with Jamie Jo and Erik. But their dreams of legally becoming a family with Oakley were crushed when they were notified that the plan changed again, and Oakley would be returning to her biological parents at the end of 2019.
After she was returned, there were several calls made to social services about Oakley, including a call from Andrew Carlson’s own mother. But Oakley remained in her biological parent’s care.
Eventually, around the end of 2021, people noticed that Oakley wasn’t with the rest of her family. Due to some quick thinking by Oakley’s sister’s school principal, she ultimately led authorities to uncover that there had been no verified sightings of Oakley for almost a year.
When authorities questioned Jordan Bowers and Andrew Carlson, they shut down and became uncooperative. When they search the family home that had recently been on fire for several hours, they find blood but no Oakley. She remains missing to this day.
Anyone with information about Oakley is urged to contact the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office at 360-533-8765 or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.
