The article above says she was a Director of a child care center...as a paranoid schizophrenic, that could be very dangerous. I was surprised by this, I have worked with this disability in patients, and her working with children, could have been confusing.

With no leads on the whereabouts of a 37-year-old Portland woman missing for a week, her parents today made a plea to the public for any information that would bring Heidi Anderson back.

Portland Detective Mike Weinstein, who receives about 450 to 500 reports a year of missing adults, said Anderson's disappearance is unusual. There's no evidence of foul play and nothing in her background that provides any answers as to why she's suddenly gone.


Anderson was last seen Feb. 8 about 4:45 p.m. in the area of Northeast 90th Avenue and Sandy Boulevard when she suddenly got out of a vehicle she was riding in with her roommate, exhibiting unusual symptoms of paranoia.


She had no prior long-term mental health problems, or any alcohol or drug issues, Weinstein said.


Family emailed to let us know that the discussion about any mental history is wrong and would like to set the record straight. The above article reflects this as well so the title has been edited and let's remember to be sensitive to these hurting families. "Heidi stood for integrity, honesty, and advocacy" so let's try to do the same please.
