Police Still Investigating Attempted Kidnapping in Umatilla

Oregon State Police (OSP) Criminal Investigation Division is investigating a reported kidnapping Sunday evening of a 21-year old white female by two unidentified suspects who stopped to see if she needed help with her vehicle along Highway 730 about six miles east of the junction with Highway 395.

Shortly thereafter, the two suspects forcibly kidnapped the woman and drove her in their dark colored sport utility vehicle an unknown distance before she was able to escape and hide from the suspects in nearby brush off the highway.

OSP detectives are continuing to investigate and are asking anyone with information regarding this reported crime to contact OSP Detective Jeremy Gunter at (541) 278-4090 ext. 4951.
