    MISSING: Search for Hermiston woman underway, police call disappearance ‘suspicious’

    snip
    Melody Kaye Mickel, 26, was last seen around 5:30 a.m. Thursday leaving a Rite Aid store in Hermiston, where she worked, said Umatilla County sheriff’s officials.


    snip
    The investigating led them to a home on Powerline Road, west of Hermiston, where Alberto Quiroz Martinez, 28, lives, authorities said.

    “One out at the residence, there were additional suspicious circumstances located,” sheriff’s officials said.

    They did not specify what the suspicious circumstances were, but they activated the Umatilla/Morrow County Major Crime Team. Investigators are waiting on a warrant to search the home.


    An attempt-to-locate was broadcast to law enforcement agencies in the region about Mickel and Martinez.

    This is a good article..


    snip
    HERMISTON, OR -- "This is my darling, sweet daughter. And I'll die practically, if she doesn't make it back."

    Starr Nice knows it just isn't like her daughter Melody Mickel to go without contact for nearly two days.

    "We knew she had to go to work today at noon. And so when I came here and they said she wasn't here, it's very unusual."

    Police say Melody's fellow coworkers at Rite Aid reported her missing Thursday morning, after she'd been gone for about four hours with NO explanation.

    About 4 1/2 hours after Mickel left work, a coworker called Hermiston Police who then contacted the Umatilla County Sheriff's Office.

    They have called the circumstances of her disappearance "suspicious," and say she may be with her former boyfriend

    They last were seen in a black 2006 Subaru Legacy, with Oregon plates 003CWZ.

    Police now believe Hermiston woman was kidnapped, arrest warrant issued

    Umatilla County authorities now believe a Hermiston woman who's been missing since Thursday was kidnapped.

    Oh this is not looking good! I wonder where he is from and where he might be hiding out! I pray she is still alive with him somewhere. The fact that he is still missing too gives me hope!

    This may or may NOT be related.. situation is currently ongoing at this point in time

    snip
    Oregon State Police said Tuesday afternoon they are "handling a situation involving a barricaded subject in the Crescent Lake area," after numerous Deschutes County police were seen speeding south to that area hours earlier.
    "Due to the sensitive stage of this incident, no other information will be released until the situation is resolved," said a brief statement from OSP spokesman Gregg Hastings.

    snip
    There was no confirmation of any ties between the incident and an apparent kidnapping in northeast Oregon, but talk-show host Lars Larson said it brought to mind an interview he'd had on Monday with a relative in that case.

    *Lars Larson is a talk show host on Portland's KXL radio station..
