In Macomb, Oklahoma, a tragic discovery has been made in the case of missing mother, Makayla Fay Meave-Byers, who vanished under mysterious circumstances last week. The 30-year-old woman’s body was found concealed in a drainage pipe, wrapped in a water-soaked carpet, a few miles from her residence.
Meave-Byers, a mother to four step-daughters and two adopted children, was last seen on September 15, departing with an unidentified man in a white pickup truck. The Pottawatomie County Undersheriff, Travis Dinwiddie, stated that the man, who was supposed to be her date that evening, remains unknown.
The grim discovery of Meave-Byers’ body was made by her cousin, who found her in a drainage culvert beneath a road. The medical examiner has since confirmed the identity of the body, and according to Dinwiddie, her death is being treated as a case of foul play.
Meave-Byers, who worked as a teacher’s aide at Macomb Public Schools, was remembered fondly by her older sister, Andria Meave. “She’s a great mother. It’s all she cares about,” Andria told local news outlet KFOR.
The school officials also released a statement expressing their grief over the tragic loss of a beloved educator and parent. They acknowledged Meave-Byers’ deep care for the students and families, and her absence will be profoundly felt.
At the time of her disappearance, Meave-Byers was in an open relationship with her husband. The man she was last seen with is described as a 6ft tall, balding white man with a beard. The authorities are still searching for this individual and have urged anyone with information to come forward.
In the wake of this tragedy, Meave-Byers’ family has set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the costs of her memorial service. They expressed their sorrow over her passing and gratitude for any assistance, whether financial or in the form of prayers.
