Local authorities scouring Oregon for a mother of two who has been missing for seven days got some help from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a private helicopter and plane, but so far no trace of the Dundee woman has been found.
Jennifer Huston, 38, vanished after leaving her Dundee, Oregon, home to run errands just before 6 p.m. on July 24, police told NBC affiliate KGW. Huston’s husband reported her missing.
"According to him, she appeared to be a little stressed out, and needed some time to clear her head and get away," Newberg-Dundee Police Department Capt. Jeff Kosmicki told the station. So far neither Huston, the woman’s dark green 1999 Lexus SUV, or any skid marks that could indicate a crash had occurred have been found, the station reported.
Investigators are not treating Huston's disappearance as a criminal case, and her husband passed a lie detector test. She was seen on surveillance video entering a Rite-Aid pharmacy, where she bought trail mix, Gatorade and a packet of sleeping pills, the station reported.
