Oakley Carlson locked in ‘cell’ under stairs: Documents

Oakley Carlson went missing from Grays Harbor, Washington, sometime in 2021, but deputies aren’t entirely sure when it happened. The image at left shows her age progressed to 6. (Images at left: National Center for Missing and Exploited Children: image at right: Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office)

A young girl — now missing and presumed dead — had been locked in a cell underneath the stairs and physically abused, her older half-brother told investigators, according to a related court ruling.

Oakley Carlson would now be 6, but she was 4 years old at her last credible sighting, previously described by authorities as being on Feb. 10, 2021. Deputies in Grays Harbor County, Washington, had trouble even finding a recent picture of her, and they had to resort to using ones when she was younger. Investigators fear she is dead and suspect her parents, Jordan Bowers and Andrew Carlson, of having something to do with it. 

The cell detail emerged in an Aug. 1 ruling from the Court of Appeals in the State of Washington. The Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office sought dependency and juvenile court records on Oakley and two of her siblings, identified in documents as “BB-P” and “DC.” They hoped that these might include details that would help them find the missing girl.
