Jennifer Huston, a 38-year-old mother of two from Dundee, Ore., has been missing since last Thursday.

Huston grew up in Tacoma and Gig Harbor and graduated from Gig Harbor High School, her husband Kallen Huston told The News Tribune.

She was last seen by her husband at their home at 5:45 p.m. Thursday evening before she left to run errands, according to a statement from the Newberg-Dundee police department.

The last trace of Huston, according to the police statement, is a security video police recovered from a Circle K gas station in Newberg at about 6:20 p.m. Police reported that she purchased gas and drove off in the  family’s dark green 1999 Lexus SUV with Oregon License number WXH-011.

Her debit card has not been charged since then and her cellphone lost service shortly after she left the gas station, the police statement said.

The Special Investigations Unit of the Newberg-Dundee Police Department is  investigating the disappearance. There is no evidence of foul play, according to the police department.

Kallen Huston, implored the public to help search for his wife at a televised press conference Monday.

“I have the feeling that maybe she is in a ditch somewhere,” Kallen Huston said. ” I would ask people to look behind buildings. Look in somebody’s backyard for her car.”

Huston said that the disappearance was out of character for his wife. He said she was acting normally before she disappeared, but had been complaining for days of headaches.

At the conference, Kallen Huston held up a flier that described his wife as a 5-foot-7  with an average build and blonde shoulder-length hair. The flier said she was wearing black and pink Nike shoes and black yoga pants when she went missing

Family and friends created a Facebook page, “Find Jennifer Huston,”  that had more than 25,000 likes as of Monday evening. The page has posts asking for volunteers to search for Jennifer Huston, post fliers and pray for her safety.

Anyone with information about the disappearance should contact Detective Ryan Simmons at 503-554-8954.
