Due to media coverage, missing woman Lakecia Dean contacted police last night. Officers verified that she is safe.

Johnson is still wanted.



On Wednesday, November 7, 2012, 25-year-old Lakecia ("La-keesha") Dean was reported missing to the Portland Police Bureau, after she failed to return home the night before, and she then suddenly, and uncharacteristically, dropped out of contact with family and friends.

Lakecia was reported to have last been seen at her residence, where she lives with her boyfriend, in the 900 block of Northwest Naito Parkway, during the early morning hours on Tuesday, November 6, 2012. Investigation determined she spoke with her mother, later that evening, but has not been seen or heard from since then.

Missing Persons Unit detectives were called in, and have determined that Lakecia may have come into contact with an ex-boyfriend, 39-year-old Stefan Miguel Johnson, since the time she was last seen.

Detectives have stressed that Johnson has not been named as a suspect in this investigation; however, they have advised that Johnson currently has a felony warrant out for his arrest, on an unrelated matter.

Lakecia is described as an African-American female, 25 years old, 5'6", 115 pounds, with straight, shoulder-length black hair and brown eyes. There is little available clothing description, but she was believed to have likely been wearing black, Nike Jordan high-tops, with pink trim.

Johnson is described as an African-American male, 39 years old, 5'9", 220 pounds, with short, cropped, black hair and brown eyes, with numerous tattoos on his neck and arms.

Anyone with information about the current whereabouts of either of these two people is asked not to approach them, but to immediately 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.
