DUNDEE, Ore. — The 38-year-old mother who was missing for nearly two weeks was found dead by her vehicle on a dirt road near Sheridan in Yamhill County on Tuesday morning.
A property owner discovered Jennifer Huston’s SUV in a grove of trees near Gopher Valley Road just off Highway 18 after noticing that a fence had been moved. It’s about 25 miles from where she was last seen.
Captain Jeff Kosmicki says they were certain that it was Huston’s car because the property owner read the license plate number to the dispatcher.
Huston was last seen on the evening of July 24th when she left home to run errands. Her husband says she was a little stressed out. She used an ATM, fueled up and made a stop at a store. Her cell phone stopped working shortly after.
Her family and searchers looked seemingly all over for Huston. There was even talk that she may have left town.
Huston has two young sons and would’ve celebrated her ten-year wedding anniversary next week.
The Newberg/Dundee community is shocked, sad and heartbroken with the outcome. One mother said she wonders how someone could do that to their family.
