Washington County woman missing under unusual circumstances

Washington County woman missing under unusual circumstances

A 23-year-old OR woman disappeared on Saturday in what police officers are calling "strange circumstances".

The Washington County Sheriff's Office, which sent out the information Tuesday night that Helenius had been found, was the primary agency investigating the case, Lane County Sheriff's Sgt. Carrie Carver had said Tuesday afternoon. Thompson says the conference ended at 10 p.m.

Helenius lives with her parents in the Washington County community of Rock Creek and generally texts or calls them when she's headed from one place to another, Thompson said.

Roseburg is about 60 miles south of Creswell, where Helenius' phone was found Saturday night.

Saturday night, Helenius' phone was given to a worker at a Dairy Queen in Creswell, Oregon, which is about nine miles north of Cottage Grove.

On Monday, Helenius's vehicle, a black 2013 Volkswagen Bug, was found in Cottage Grove, about 10 miles south of the Dairy Queen where her phone was found. Cottage Grove is about 130 miles south of Portland.

Demi Helenius, 23, went missing from a self-help conference in Portland Saturday night, police said.

Another change would be that patients could bring people other than only designated caregivers to dispensaries. New Yorkers will have 30 days to comment on the proposed regulations when they are published later this month.

Demi's mother told KGW it's not like her daughter to disappear.

'Our thoughts and concerns are with Demi and her family and like her family, we hope she is safe and found quickly'. The worker said a man went through the drive-thru, said he found the phone and turned it in, according to Thompson.

She did not attend the conference today and has not contacted her family.

Investigators say there were no signs of foul play after an initial examination of the auto.

Detectives used surveillance video from the restaurant to identify the man.

Police have since spoken to the man who said he found the cell after he saw someone throw it from a auto, Oregon Live reported.
