    OR - Maddie Smith, 25, Gresham, 14 March 2017

    Family and friends looking for missing Portland woman

    Maddie Smith vanished last week.

    She’d recently had to move out of the house she shared because she’d broken her arm and couldn’t work.

    She was getting a ride with her father Tuesday when she jumped out near Southeast 172nd and Foster and ran.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    If you do a fb search of "maddie smith missing " you'll find a post by her sister that has more pics and interesting comments. Just a warning, there are over 400 comments but worth scrolling through. I seriously hope she's found soon, sounds like she may have had a mental health break. MOO

    I messaged her sister informing her of this thread and how dedicated websleuths is to finding missing people. I hope she joins and I really, really hope Maddie is found safe soon.

    I hope they find her soon.
    I am so terribly worried about this young woman ...:

    "'Our main concern, my main concern, is that creek. There’s been a lot of rain, it's been full, it's muddy,' said Maddie’s mom, Julie Wadell. 'You can’t see anything, even though we’ve been there every day searching.'"
    http://www.kgw.com/mb/news/family-de...mith/424201135

    So I pulled up the area where Maddie jumped out of her dad's truck in Google Earth, and ... yes, her mom is right to be worried about the creek ... : https://goo.gl/maps/bX1UWZVenL32

    The katu article says, "[Maddie] was last seen March 14 around 8 p.m." The time of sunset at Portland-Troutdale Airport, which only five miles north of Gresham that day was 7:14 PM, so it would have been completely dark when she ran out of the truck: https://www.wunderground.com/history...eqdb.wmo=99999

    I hope that Maddie is found today! The Help FB is very active, which is great to see:

    Updated poster, Multnomah County Sheriff's Office has nothing to do with this case and had no clue who I was talking about when I called them. It is a Portland Police case. Please verify correct contacts before posting. It does no good when people call a number and no one there has a clue what you are talking about, valuable tips could be lost by not verifying cases: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/polic...?id=37994&ec=1
