May 26, 2013 12:30


Missing 71-year-old Jacqueline McLain was found safe in Albuquerque, New Mexico and is no longer considered a missing person.



On May 23, 2013, 71-year-old Jacqueline McLain was reported missing to the Portland Police Bureau by her adult children, who are out-of-state. McLain has not been seen or heard from since Monday, May 20, 2013, which was described as being highly out of character for her, as she usually has daily contact with family members.

McLain lives in the 2400 block of Northwest Irving Street, where Central Precinct officers responded today to check her welfare. They did not locate her, and found no evidence of foul play inside her apartment. It is unknown if she left home on foot, or may have last been driving, as officers were unable to locate her car in the neighborhood.

McLain is described as a white female, 71 years old, 5'2", 120 pounds, with curly, collar-length blonde hair and blue eyes. No clothing description is available. Family members advised she may also go by the first name Evelyn.

McLain's vehicle is described as a 1997 Lexus ES300 4-door sedan, beige in color, with a beige interior. It may have a GPS unit affixed to the front windshield. No license plate information is available at this time, other than it had Oregon plates.

Anyone with information about McLain's current whereabouts is asked to call 9-1-1. Anyone with additional information about this case is asked to contact Detective Mike Weinstein, Missing Persons Unit, at (503) 823-0446 or Mike.Weinstein@portlandoregon.gov.
