VALLIANT, Okla.-Every day Harold Boggs wonders why his daughter, Hope Danelle Meek, suddenly disappeared more than three years ago.

"This is on my mind all of the time. I'm not going to rest until they find my daughter or I get some answers from questions," Boggs said. "This angers me that I can't get any answers."

Authorities still baffled four years after Valliant woman's disappearance

KTEN Local News

VALLIANT, Okla. McCurtain County authorities say they still have no leads more than four years after the disappearance of a Hope Meek of Valliant.

But Valliant Police Chief David Carrell does say he believes Meek is dead.

Meek was last reported seen by her husband Jerry about 3 p-m on February 21st, 2002. Jerry Meek told police the couple was separating and he left 500 dollars for his wife then took their three young children camping.

Meek said it was too cold too camp so he returned to the home about midnight to find Hope Meek and the money missing, but her pickup truck, keys and cell phone were at the house.

Hope Meek also never picked up her final paycheck from the McCurtain County Sheriff's Department where she worked.

Jerry Meek didn't report Hope missing for five days and has refused to a request to take a polygraph test.

Hope is on Project Jason's current 18 Wheel Angel campaign. A special poster has been made for her and can be downloaded and printed for placement. More information about the program, and the link for the poster can be found here:

Project Jason - Assistance for families of the missing

In addition to the campaign, Hope is also featured in a trucking publication called Through the Gears. This free magazine is distributed in truck stops nationwide.

Through the Gears is one of JB Scott's many publications. In partnership with Project Jason, they feature one missing person per month. You can pick up your free copies at a local truck stop, but if it's far from you, you may want to call and ask if they carry that magazine. These are NOT with the regular for purchase magazines. At my truck stop, they are in a special rack outside the main truck stop door. At another truck stop, they are in a hallway between the store and the trucker's lounge.

Through the Gears has a circulation of about 150,000.

You can also see the current campaign information on this JB Scott webpage: 18 Wheel Angels

We hope this helps in the search for Hope.

OSBI arrests Okla. man for wife's alleged murder

Published 2:35 p.m., Friday, August 10, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Investigators have arrested the husband of a McCurtain County woman for murder in connection with her disappearance 10 years ago.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said Friday agents arrested 39-year-old Jerry Meek at the International Paper Company in Valliant where he works.

Defense attorney Terry Pierce of Norman says Meeks is not guilty and his wife is a missing person.

The OSBI says Meek's wife, 25-year-old Hope Meek, was reported missing by her husband in February 2002 several days after he last saw her. The agency says it has gathered circumstantial evidence indicating the woman died on February 21, 2002, after a fight with her husband at their home.

Jerry Meek was booked into the McCurtain County Jail on a first-degree murder complaint. His bond was set at $250,000.

McCurtain County man charged with murdering wife a decade ago

By DAVID HARPER World Staff Writer

A 39-year-old man was arrested Friday and accused of murder in connection with the disappearance of his wife more than 10 years ago, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

Jerry Meek was arrested by OSBI agents at the International Paper Co. in Valliant, where he was working.

He was booked into the McCurtain County Jail on a first-degree murder charge.

Hope Meek was 25 when she was reported missing by Jerry Meek in late February 2002, according to the OSBI.

The bureau said in a Friday press release that it has gathered "ample circumstantial evidence" to show that Hope Meek is deceased and that she died Feb. 21, 2002, after a fight with her husband at their home.

The evidence includes facts such as no activity on Hope Meek's cell phone, no use of her Social Security number and no transactions involving her bank account since her disappearance, OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown said.

"Nothing indicates that she is still alive," Brown said.

The OSBI said Friday's arrest was made possible by the willingness of the McCurtain County District Attorney's Office to prosecute a case without the victim’s body being found and despite the passage of time since Hope Meek disappeared.

The District Attorney's Office had no comment when reached by the Tulsa World on Friday.

MCCURTAIN COUNTY, OK -- After an 8 day trial a McCurtain County man has been found guilty of his wife's murder eleven years ago, although her body has never been found.

 

A jury convicted 39-year-old Jerry Meek of first degree murder and recommended a sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole.

The conviction was made possible by a new DA willing to try the case without Hope Meek's body.

It took a jury over six hours of deliberations today to reach a guilty verdict.

 

Sentencing is set for December 11th.

MCCURTAIN COUNTY, OK -- A McCurtain County man, found guilty of murder, has been sentenced to life in prison.

40-year-old Jerry Meek was convicted in October of first degree murder in the death of his wife, Hope Meek.

 

She disappeared in 2002, but it wasn't until district attorney Mark Matloff took office that the state was willing to try the case without her body being found.

 

Meek will have to serve at least 38 years before he's eligible for parole.

 

The McCurtain County Court Clerks Office says Meek is planning to appeal.
