Oakley Carlson case: New charges filed against parents of missing Washington girl

The parents of 5-year-old Oakley Carlson, missing since last year, were charged with additional crimes on Monday.

Jordan Bowers and Andrew Carlson were charged with two counts of endangerment with a controlled substance.

Both parents were already charged with second-degree abandonment of a dependent person, which is a felony. These charges are not connected to Oakley's disappearance, but another 6-year-old who was living in their Oakville home.

They have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Deputies learned during their investigation into Oakley’s disappearance that Bowers and Carlson had allegedly not been providing medication to their 6-year-old daughter as required by her doctor for over a year.
