    Evidence of missing woman not yet processed; no signs of foul play

    The fingerprints found inside the car of the missing woman who was last seen in Grants Pass almost 8 months ago have not been processed. Fauna Frey’s family continues to search for her and Scott McKee, a law enforcement consultant is assisting them with the search.


    McKee, a retired police officer with 35 years of experience explained the evidence found included some of her belongings, food she had just purchased, and fingerprints.

    “By necessity and because of their workload, the Oregon State Police crime lab prioritizes their work based on their own criteria, and a cold missing person case is understandably a little lower on the priority list,” McKee noted.

    He said the fingerprints have yet to be processed because there is no evidence that a crime was committed.

    They need to get on processing these fingerprints before Fauna's poor dad has a mental breakdown. Losing both his kids within a month of eachother...

    I would agree with that, except that who the fingerprints belong to definitely could turn this into a criminal investigation. If they weren't her's the chances go way up. If they match a criminal or sex criminal then absolutely it is a criminal case. 8 months is ridiculous.

    Errr, okay!?! :confused: --We're not in a rush to test these fingerprints, which could be evidence of a crime, b/c we have no evidence of a crime.-- I suppose they're thinking if Fauna was a victim of a crime, the perp will kindly send them a packet of evidence. Maybe then they'll analyze the prints? o_O Come on, OSP. Y'all can do better than that.:mad:

    Wow, I sure hope they will decide to process those prints soon.
    At least they collected them, I'll try to be nice.

    LIVID! how many finger prints do they have to process there first?!? There are specialists for that. They could send the evidence to any metro area for other professionals to process, i cannot believe that specific excuse.
    This could be an abduction or murder! So unfathomable, irresponsible and disrespectful.

    I just saw this case on AMW, how heartbreaking for her dad. I don’t understand how the fingerprints haven’t been processed.

    I haven't seen this posted here yet but Nowhere to be Found has a full podcast on Fauna's case which is being posted to the FB page (she is the one that did Michael Bryson's case) This episode opens with a great timeline and known details: S2E3- Missing Pieces

    The socks are most likely not related to Fauna. Since the post was made by one of the three admins (JH-S, LP and MR), we can discuss its contents here.

    Found in her car:
    *empty package to 3 palm size flashlights
    *empty package to AM/FM Radio

    The palm sized flashlights have really stuck out to me since the beginning. A picture of them was posted on HFFF recently. They seem so inadequate, yet she was described as a very experienced hiker by the admins of HFFF and her father. If she was an experienced hiker, why didn't she have or purchase a high powered flashlight or a headlamp instead? Small detail, but it's been driving me absolutely crazy!

    The empty packages of flashlights and radio make me think she went out exploring since these items were not found in her car. Also, her car was locked and purse gone per HFFF, so I'm not sensing foul play. However, it's not outside the realm of possibility that someone could have set up the scene to make it look like she left of her own volition when in reality she didn't...

    One of the HFFF moderators was on the podcast for the last episode and said that a box of dark colored hair dye was also found in her jeep. This strikes me as so strange! Her father also said in one of the earlier podcasts that she was reading books about going off the grid before she went missing. He speculates that she could have chosen to vanish...

    IMO/Speculation:
    I don't think she would go this long without contacting her father, as they were very close. It sounds to me like she could be suffering from a mental breakdown/trauma induced psychosis. There are a lot of homeless encampments in this area where she could be if she was mentally impaired. I hope that's the case and she didn't just wander off into the woods, but sadly that's the vibe I've been getting, especially due to the flashlights, radio, and purse missing, as well as the car being locked (all per HFFF)

    I still think people should be actively canvassing the area adjacent to where her vehicle was located, as well as making contact with homeless encampments in case she somehow managed to end up in one.

    Not any new information about her, but this is a local news article that mentions Fauna and offers some stark statistics:

    Rogue Valley News, Monday 2/8 – Oregon Has Third-Highest Rate Of Open Missing Person Cases In USA, White City Man Sentenced for Illegally Poaching in Crater Lake National Park For Years - Rogue Valley Magazine

    "Disturbing Number of Missing Women in Oregon in Past 2 Years
    Of course, not only women are missing, as there are so many children and men missing too. And really missing person’s is a crisis that gets shoved aside as not enough resources and is a horrible thing to even think about.

    However, there is a disturbing number of women and in particular, a pattern emerging: There are 47 women over the age of 30 on the missing person list just in the last 2 years. 33 since January 2020. 29 since June 2020 as seems to have escalated in last 6 months. 16 missing in last 3 months since November 2020. There is a pattern and this needs to be looked into. https://www.oregon.gov/osp/missing/pages/missingpersons.aspx"

    Oregon, for such a small sparsely populated state sure has got quite the problem. It's more than 1 woman going missing every 2 weeks!

    As far as I know there has been no investigation into the matter, but I'd love to be wrong
