In Oregon, the hunt for missing female Jennifer Huston was given a boost by receiving help from a private helicopter and plane on Wednesday. That evening Oregon State Police said they would continue above ground searches in the look-out for the mom who has disappeared.
Huston, age 38, vanished after leaving her house about 5:45 p.m. last Thursday in order to do some errands, stated a police timeline. Her husband called emergency officials and said she was missing on Friday. The husband stated that Jennifer appeared to be somewhat stressed out, and wanted some time away when she had left on Thursday, declared Police Captain. Jeff Kosmicki.
The missing woman was seen last driving a dark green, 1999 Lexus SUV. It had Oregon license plates on it with the number WXH 011. The SUV had a crack in the shape of a U in the windshield on the passenger side and a Yakima ski rack on the roof. Jennifer Huston is 5 foot 7 inches tall and has blue eyes and blonde hair. She was wearing black and pink Nike shoes and black yoga pants the night she disappeared.
Her family told the media Wednesday morning about the helicopter joining the search. Its rental was paid for by donations. A small airplane also hit the skyways on Wednesday as well. Unfortunately there was no new information discovered that day, but police stated they would continue aerial searches on both Thursday and Friday.
Meanwhile, they are continuing to look through rural areas and logging roads. They said that their main plan is to bring in as many resources as possible and try to hit as many county roads as they are able. The search has also stretched to the San Juan Islands because police think Huston might have gone there because they were one of her favorite spots when she was a child.
The San Juan County Sheriff explained that no precise information about Huston’s whereabouts had been found, however officials in Oregon told the media they think the missing female may be somewhere on the islands but refused to go into any further detail.
The islands might be a perfect place for Huston to go if she was attempting to try and keep hidden because the ferry system does not have reader machines for license plates. A ping from her cellphone exposed the fact that she was heading north after she left Oregon.
Despite all the search efforts, police have found very few leads. They have sent out an updated bulletin to law enforcement agencies in Alaska, California, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Since there has been no new information, detectives continue to treat this as a missing person’s case with no known criminal component.
If anyone has information, leads or tips about Jennifer Huston’s whereabouts, he or she is urged to call the Newberg-Dundee Police Department at 503-537-1246 or 503-538-8321. The family has been giving updates about Huston on a Facebook page and numerous individuals have been tweeting about her as well.
