30-year-old Lyubov Bilyk has been confirmed safe and is no longer considered a missing person.



The Portland Police Bureau's Missing Persons Unit is asking for the public's help in locating 30-year-old Lyubov Bilyk (pronounced "Loo-bov Bill-ick"), who was reported missing by family members, after she failed to return home on March 15, 2014.

Bilyk was last seen at approximately 5:00 a.m. that morning, and may have left her residence in the 2200 block of Southeast Umatilla Street on foot.

Bilyk may be suffering from a medical condition, which may need immediate attention. There is additional concern for Bilyk's welfare, as some of her personal property was found on the ground, nearby her residence, by a passerby, which was then returned to her family. It was the property having been found which prompted notification to police, initiating a missing person report, on March 17, 2014.

Missing Persons Unit detectives and Central Precinct officers, have been working since then to search and canvass the surrounding area, for any possible witnesses or additional evidence.

At this point there is no evidence of any foul play being involved in Bilyk's disappearance.

Bilyk is described as a white female, 30 years old, 5'5", 120 pounds. She has brown hair and green eyes. She has no eyebrows, and sometimes draws them in with makeup. She usually wears large, dark-colored sunglasses. Bilyk is Russian, but speaks English well, with a strong accent. She may have left with a small, rolling carry-on bag.

Anyone who knows of Bilyk's whereabouts is asked to immediately call 9-1-1.

Anyone with additional, non-emergency information about this case is asked to contact Detective Mike Weinstein, at (503) 823-0446 or Mike.Weinstein@portlandoregon.gov.
