###ORIGINAL MESSAGE###

On Saturday, April 21, 2012, at approximately 10:00PM, 32-year-old Myra LaRocque was reported missing to Portland Police, after she failed to return to a friend's residence, in the area of Southeast 94th Avenue / Ash Street. LaRocque had last been seen when she left the residence, at about 6:00AM, earlier that morning. LaRocque was visiting Portland from Indiana, but she is supposed to be familiar with the area.

LaRocque reportedly suffers from a serious medical condition, which, if left untreated, could seriously jeopardize her welfare. Missing Persons Unit detectives have become involved in the investigation, and are concerned that LaRocque may pose a danger to her own safety.

LaRocque is described as a white female, 32 years old, 5'9", 240 pounds, with shoulder-length brown hair, worn in a ponytail, and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a light-blue sweater, jeans and tennis shoes.

Anyone who knows of LaRocque's whereabouts is asked not to approach her, but to immediately call 9-1-1. Anyone with additional information about this case is asked to contact Detective Mike Weinstein, at 503-823-0446.
