Search for missing Oregon woman Jennifer Huston continues

Police in Oregon are asking for the public’s help to find a former Gig Harbor woman who vanished while running errands near her family’s home in Dundee.  Jennifer Huston, 38, was last spotted on surveillance video purchasing gasoline at a Circle K convenience store in Newberg Thursday. A short time later her cellphone was turned off and Huston hasn’t been seen since, police said.

“This is totally unlike her,” said Huston’s husband, Kallen, during a Monday news conference as he fought back tears. “She is a devoted mother. She’s a very good person.” The Hustons have two sons, ages 2 and 6.

Dundee police said there was no sign of criminal activity following Huston’s disappearance and her husband is fully cooperating with the investigation. “We are following up leads,” said Dundee police Capt. Jeff Kosmicki. “We are obviously trying to get subpoenas for bank records, cellphone records, any video that could give us direction.” Kosmicki said so far investigators have not found any activity on Huston’s credit cards or bank accounts.

 Kallen Huston said his wife had recently suffered headaches, but that they didn’t seem to impact her daily activities. “She complained about headaches for three straight days. Not debilitating and didn’t keep her in bed. But she and I both thought it was a little odd.”

Huston urged the public to be on the lookout for the couple’s dark green 1999 Lexus SUV in case his wife had an accident and was trapped in the vehicle. “Look to the left and off the highways. Her car is very large. It would wipe out any shrubs or potential small trees,” said Huston.
