Rickey Joseph Kutej (not pictured here) and Rodger Lewis Osborn have been missing from McAlester, Oklahoma since March 26th, 2003. The two men went to Rodger’s shop in Alderson, Oklahoma, not far from McAlester. They were friends and co-workers. They planned to work on some odd jobs around the shop which was located near 5th St. and US Hwy 270.

Later in the day police were called to the garage because no one was around but it was open. They found that someone had recently been working with a bulldozer. They also found a knocked over ladder with blood on the ground nearby. Investigators theorized that one of them fell off the ladder and hurt himself but neither of the men received medical care or sought medical care anywhere.

Rickey preferred to be called Rick. He was 43 at the time of his disappearance. He was 5’10-6’2 and 225lbs with dark brown hair and hazel eyes. Rickey was balding and wore glasses. He was possibly wearing jeans and a t-shirt.

Rodger was 62 at the time of his disappearance. He was 6’3-6’4 and 260lbs with graying brown hair and blue/hazel eyes. Rodger wore glasses with transition lenses. He had a gray beard and mustache. He was likely wearing a watch, a gold rope chain with an eagle pendant and possibly jeans with a t-shirt and Nikes.

They were likely driving a black 1999 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck with Oklahoma plates and custom aluminum parts.

Please call the Pittsburg County Sheriff at 918.423.5858 with any information on the whereabouts of Rick and Rodger.
