    Deputies searching for missing 20-year-old woman near North Plains
    [​IMG]

    A search is underway in Washington County for a woman who was last seen hiking on Sunday.
    The sheriff’s office said she was last seen on Sunday in a wooded area near North Plains when she was hiking with a man.
    Her mother Misty told FOX 12 that the man Watterson was hiking with is her boyfriend and that after they got separated he went to get help.

    Man last seen with missing woman arrested on unrelated charges


    Watterson and her boyfriend, Benjamin Garland, had been hiking along Old Pumpkin Ridge Road last weekend when they got separated.

    According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, a resident found Garland asleep alone in a truck and took him home to Hillsboro, and then Garland and his father went back to look for Watterson.

    When they couldn't find her, they called Watterson's family and the missing person search began Tuesday morning.

    Watterson's family said there's no reason they can think of why Watterson would just take off without telling them.


    After talking to Garland, sheriff's deputies arrested him on several charges not associated with Watterson's disappearance.

    Garland will be in court Thursday.

    The Washington County Sheriff’s Office organized the search which included more volunteers than the party needed. They spent Wednesday following up on possible leads. The sheriff’s office said they have been flooded with tips.

    Allyson and her boyfriend, Benjamin Garland, got separated while hiking near Old Pumpkin Ridge Road in a wooded area near North Plains.

    She was last seen wearing an orange-yellow hooded sweatshirt, a red backpack, black jeans and brown Calvin Klein boots.

    She is white with blue eyes and dark brown hair. She’s about 5-feet-7 and 120 pounds. She has 2 tattoos: an eye on the front of her left shoulder and a fairy sitting on a spider web on her left forearm.

    WCSO: 2nd day of search for missing 20-year-old concludes

    Garland is cooperating with the investigation, which is not a criminal investigation at this point. But he is in the Washington County Jail awaiting a court appearance on Thursday on a stolen vehicle charge plus a bench warrant for possession of meth, both unrelated to the search for Allyson.

    #FindAllyson - Day 4 of the search for Allyson Watterson is set to start at 8 a.m. @WCSOOregon says this will be a narrow and time-sensitive search today, and only professional crews will be involved. The 20-year-old North Plains woman has been missing since Sunday #LiveOnK2

    As @WCSOOregon mentioned, far fewer crews here today in North Plains as search and rescue teams prepare for day 4 of their search for 20 year old Allyson Watterson. Today’s effort will be far more narrow/refined due to “new clues” found yesterday #FindAllyson #LiveOnK2

    Trained searchers to scour for Allyson Watterson
    […]

    … Garland pleaded not guilty in a Washington County court to charges of theft, fraudulent use of credit card, unauthorized use of a vehicle and possession of a stolen vehicle.

    About 100 searchers — including about 50 volunteers — scoured the area Thursday. But in a late afternoon update, Washington County Deputy Tony Morris said the search will continue without volunteers.

    Quotes from article:

    On Thursday, when the new discovery was made, an Oregon National Guard helicopter with heat-sensing cameras was being used to aid the search.

    “[We] have found some interesting items and clues that we’re going to try to find out more information tomorrow with a different type of search,” Washington County Sheriff’s Deputy Tony Morris said at a press conference.

    “I’m not free to say what it is at this point. Just know that it’s something that’s going to change the type of searching we’re doing.”

    Watterson’s parents were grateful for the search efforts.

    “We just really, really want to thank everyone, and we want this to keep going until we find Allyson,” her father, Alan Watterson, said at the press conference.

    Her mother, Misty Watterson, said, “She’s just a very special person, and I will do anything to get her home. Anything.”

    Misty also adds: Their car broke down and that’s how they got separated. “They weren’t out here doing anything bad.”

    Deputies say they can’t ping Allyson’s phone because it’s WiFi-only.

    They also want to remind people to stay away from the search area, as that’s been a problem
