What would you do if someone you loved, like say your spouse or best friend went to run a few errands and never came home?
That’s what happened last Thursday to Jennifer Huston’s husband and two little boys (and the rest of her family and friends). At the time of this writing, Monday evening, no one has any clue where she is.
Literally we are down here in Yamhill County looking in ravines and driving around looking for signs her 1999 Dark Green Lexus drove off the road – skid marks, broken guard rails, crushed brush – anything. We are looking for any. thing. that could offer a clue.
While I wasn’t close with Jen, we went to high school together in Washington and met at the park down here in Newberg and stood side-by-side pushing our boys on the swings.
I am having a hard time sleeping and thinking about much else knowing that something could have happened to her and the not knowing is a special kind of hell. My heart breaks for her husband and their two little guys who must know something is wrong.
Time is obviously of the essence, if you can, please pass along this flyer and if anyone has seen Jennifer or her car, please call your local police department.
A Facebook page has been set up Find Jennifer Huston for more information.
