Oregon State Police (OSP) Criminal Investigation Division is continuing the investigation into a reported kidnapping last Sunday evening of a 21-year old white female by two unidentified suspects who stopped at the scene of her disabled vehicle along Highway 730 about six miles east of the junction with Highway 395. OSP is releasing some additional information related to the suspects, their vehicle, and two image sketches. Anyone with information regarding this reported crime is asked to contact OSP Detective Jeremy Gunter at (541) 278-4090 ext. 4951.
According to the victim, she was outside her stopped vehicle along the highway during the early evening hours of February 17, 2013 when two Hispanic males stopped and offered assistance. Shortly thereafter, the two suspects forcibly kidnapped the woman and drove her in their dark colored sport utility vehicle an unknown distance before she was able to escape and hide from the suspects in nearby brush off the highway. The woman received minor injuries during the incident.
The suspects, who spoke English and Spanish, were reportedly in a dark colored unknown make sport utility vehicle (SUV) described as having individual white letters spelling an unknown Hispanic type name or word on the rear window. The letters are estimated 3 - 4 inches high and the word is about a foot in length across the rear window. Suspect #1 is described as approximately 6'00", 220 pounds. Suspect #2 is described as approximately 5'10", unknown weight. Image sketches are provided in the link with this news release.
OSP detectives are continuing to investigate and urge anyone with information to identify the suspects to call Detective Gunter. Tips may also be forwarded to OSP by email to crimetips2OSP@state.or.us. Tips should include specific details including the type of case and information related to the criminal investigation. Even though tips may be received anonymously, those providing tips are encouraged to give contact information for follow-up by the investigator(s), if needed.
