On November 7, 2001, the family of 56-year-old Minnie Young called the Portland Police Bureau to report that Young is a missing person. Young was last seen at 5:00 p.m. on November 6, 2001 at the home of a family member in Southeast Portland. Young’s vehicle was found on November 8, 2001 in a parking lot at SW 10th Avenue and SW Morrison Street.

Each year the Portland Police Bureau receives hundreds of missing person reports. In the vast majority of these cases the person is found safe. Occasionally adults chose, for personal reasons, to break contact with their family. In this situation, the family states that Young always maintains contact. Young has also missed several prearranged commitments with friends and family. Several detectives from the Portland Police Bureau Homicide Division have been assigned to this investigation. Detectives are looking for any person who may have seen Young in the past several days.

Portland Police Bureau Detective Sergeant Jon Rhodes, lead investigator, is asking anyone who may have had contact with Young call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357).

The Portland Metro Crime Stoppers Program is offering a cash reward for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, which leads to a resolution in this case, and you need not give your name.

A flyer, including a photograph of Young along with her physical and clothing description, is available via e-mail from the Portland Police Bureau Identification Division.
