The search for a missing Cyril, Oklahoma girl is now considered a recovery operation. Special Agents from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, along with our partners at the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP), have been searching areas of Caddo County for the girl’s remains.

4-year-old Athena Brownfield hasn't been seen for nearly a week. Two-people have been arrested in connection to her disappearance.  It was discovered that Athena was missing when a postal carrier found her 5-year-old sister outside a home with no adult supervision on January 10. The postal carrier notified the Cyril Police Department and that’s when the investigation into Athena’s whereabouts began.

Alysia Adams is facing two counts of Child Neglect and Ivon Adams is facing one count of First Degree Murder and one count of Child Neglect. Ivon Adams was arrested in Phoenix on January 12, 2023 and is awaiting extradition to Oklahoma. Alysia was also arrested on January 12, 2023 and is currently in the Caddo County Jail.

At this time, these are accusations and neither party has been convicted of any crime related to this investigation. The parties are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

The girls biological parents have been interviewed by agents and are cooperating with the investigation.

The OSBI is asking that the public not self-deploy to search for Athena. Individuals who search for Athena on their own could be trespassing or worse, interfering with the investigation by contaminating potential evidence.
