California Visitors Missing from Portland- UPDATE

June 22, 2007 00:00


To augment the ongoing efforts of Portland Police and surrounding agencies who are assisting in the search for the missing persons, PPB Detectives have been in contact with all law enforcement agencies within "day-trip" distance, requesting that they conduct general on-and off-road searches, for possible evidence of the missing persons or their vehicle. There is no information at this time, which would allow for a more focused, full-scale search and rescue mission, although resources are standing by, should circumstances change. Detectives have been in contact with persons with whom Schwartz and Gibbs either spoke or visited with during their trip, prior to their arrival in Portland. Detectives are requesting that media broadcast a request for all tourist destinations, within the same, "day-trip" distance from Portland, to check their visitor registries or sign-in books, for either Schwartz's or Gibbs' name, on or after June 7th, 2007.

Detectives are now able to release the name and location of the motel where Schwartz and Gibbs were staying: Best Value Inn & Suites/Fortnighter - 4911 NE 82nd
