Caitlyn Rose

Caitlyn Rose Case was pleased with her new position at The Lodge Casino in Blackhawk, Colorado. She was working in the engineering department and was enjoying her time there so far.

Caitlyn was originally from Houma, Louisiana, and in July 2022, she decided to fly home to buy a car. Her plan was to drive it back to Blackhawk, Colorado after visiting her family for a few days.

That’s exactly what she did.

She left her family in Houma on April 4 and began her journey to Colorado.

On April 5, somewhere in Texas, Caitlyn became dissatisfied with her vehicle’s GPS and called her father. She was lost and confused, and she couldn’t seem to get back on track.

Her father was attempting to assist her in manually determining where she was and directing her back to where she needed to be.

However, the call was disconnected around 5:00 p.m.

The family attempted to contact her all night and into the next day, but were unsuccessful.

They reported Caitlyn missing to the Houma Police Department in Louisiana, knowing something was seriously wrong.

The investigation would take many unexpected turns. Caitlyn, on the other hand, has not been seen or heard from since.

Where is Caitlyn Rose Case?

Caitlyn Rose Case, 33, had recently moved to Colorado and had taken a job she enjoyed: engineering/maintenance at The Lodge Casino in Blackhawk.

Caitlyn was originally from Houma, Louisiana, where her parents and family still lived. It has been mentioned that she had family in Colorado, but I cannot confirm this.

We don’t know much about Caitlyn’s personal life, and this case raises many questions about it. Caitlyn’s family stated on the webpage they created for her that she was extremely kind to everyone she met and a very trusting person.

Caitlyn flew from Colorado to Houma, Louisiana, on July 31, 2022. Her plan was to spend a few days with her family, then buy a car from someone she knew and drive it back to Colorado. The vehicle in question is a black GMC Envoy.

Caitlyn spent a few days in Houma and then would begin the near 20-hour drive back to her home in Colorado.

The Disappearance

Caitlyn was excited to drive her new GMC Envoy from Houma back to Colorado. On August 4, she said goodbye to her family in Houma and hit the road.

Caitlyn communicated with her family throughout the first day of the trip.

Caitlyn called her father in the late afternoon hours of August 5 because she was lost. Caitlyn had become lost and confused because her GPS navigation in the car was not working.

Her father stayed on the phone with her, trying to figure out where she was and manually get her back on track. He didn’t know where she was, but he was going to stay on the phone with her and try to help her until she was back on the interstate and he was confident that his daughter was safe.

The call was terminated around 5:00 p.m. We weren’t concerned at first because we’d all had dropped calls; Caitlyn’s father simply kept trying to call her back with no success. Soon, the entire family was attempting to contact her.

They knew service would be spotty, especially if she got off the beaten path, but they hoped to reach her or have her call them back at some point.

Naturally, concern grew over time. After all, she had gotten off track since the last time they spoke, and they wanted to make sure she was back on track.

They called Caitlyn several times throughout the night, but she never answered.

Caitlyn’s father reported her missing to the Houma police department the next day, August 6, after still not hearing from her.

The Search

Caitlyn’s information was entered into the NCIC database by Houma, who immediately issued license plate reader alerts in nine surrounding states.

Their first clue wouldn’t arrive until the next day, August 7, after Caitlyn’s father had spoken to her for two days.

Her phone had been pinging around Hugo, Oklahoma. At the time, Houma notified Oklahoma authorities, who conducted a search of the area. There was no trace of Caitlyn or her GMC Envoy.

Caitlyn’s father decided to drive up to Hugo himself the next day, August 8, to look for his daughter.

Hugo, Oklahoma is located approximately 9 miles north of the Texas border. Does it make sense for her to be in Hugo, Oklahoma on her way? Maybe. But, as we’ll see, as more evidence comes in, we’ll be questioning that.

So it’s been a few days now. Caitlyn has not been heard from. No one. Her phone is either dead or turned off, and she cannot be found.

Investigators are waiting to see what information they can glean from cell phone pings and license plate readers.

Caitlyn’s family, on the other hand, is not content to wait.

On August 12, one week after Caitlyn went missing, her brother was able to use the ‘Find my Phone’ feature and pinpoint the exact coordinates of her phone with the assistance of a Best Buy employee.

The brother immediately calls their father and gives him this location. Her father reports it to authorities and heads to this location to see what he can find.

This phone indicated that it was present right now, so there was no time to waste.

When he arrives at the location, he notices a drive with a gated entry, the police arrive, and the two of them enter the property together.

As they return to the property, they come across something that brings them to a halt.

Caitlyn’s black GMC Envoy is parked in front of them on the banks of the Kiamchi River. However, it is in a perilous state. It’s perched between two trees, just above a 75-foot drop down the river.

It looked like someone had attempted to push the vehicle over the edge down into the river.

A search of the car showed no signs of Caitlyn, but all her personal belongings were there, including both of her cell phones. She had a personal cell phone and she carried one for work.

There were no signs of anything else, no signs of a struggle, no signs of foul play, but the car was obviously in an inappropriate location.

The Kiamichi River flows mostly north and south, eventually meeting the Red River at the Oklahoma-Texas border.

According to authorities, this section of the river has low water levels and would not have submerged the entire car, implying that someone was looking to dump it.

Who was it, and why was it on this property?

We can probably rule out a car accident because the car was discovered on private property.

A relative of the property owners did have an account of what occurred. She claimed that two cars came speeding down that gated drive in the middle of the night on August 5, the same day Caitlyn was last seen, and only one car returned.

It’s not known what she thought was happening exactly, and she didn’t get a good look at either vehicle.

Much to the family’s dismay, the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation didn’t secure the area as a crime scene.

The case was officially turned over to the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation the next day, August 13, the day after her car was discovered. This day also saw the arrival of a non-profit search and rescue group, complete with dogs, to search the area. This was organized by Caitlyn’s family rather than law enforcement.

Unfortunately, the owner’s son approached them and asked them to leave the property. I’m curious why. If someone went missing and wanted to search my property, I’d gladly let them, and I’d even assist them.

Nothing was found.
