Oregon State Police (OSP) is asking for the public's help for information that will lead to the recovery of a department handgun that was left Wednesday afternoon in a restroom at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center.
 
On February 9, 2011 at approximately 1:15 p.m. an OSP detective conducting a follow up investigation went into a unisex restroom near the hospital's Intensive Care Unit and placed a handgun in its holster inside the restroom. The detective left the restroom without the holstered handgun but didn't notice it was missing until after leaving the hospital.
 
OSP contacted Legacy Emanuel Medical Center security who assisted OSP with searching the area and interviewing hospital staff and visitors.
 
OSP has notified metro area law enforcement agencies of the missing handgun. The handgun, described as a black in color Glock model 22 has been entered in to the Law Enforcement Data System as a lost or stolen weapon.
 
Anyone with information to help recover the firearm is asked to contact Sergeant Jon Harrington at (503) 731-3020 ext. 258.
