SPRINGFIELD, Ore. – The family of 22-year-old Abigael Bellows arrived in Oregon Friday as the search for the woman, who disappeared under the waters near Clearwater Park, entered its fourth day.
Tressa Bellows, Abigael’s mother, said her daughter was swimming with friends along the Middle Fork Willamette River near Clearwater Park on Wednesday when witnesses saw her disappear underwater without a lifejacket. Bellows said search crews responded immediately to the scene, but were unable to locate her daughter.
Crews with Lane County Search and Rescue have combed the area every day since Abigael disappeared, but with no luck. Bellows said searchers have been using boats, divers, dogs and drones during their searches.
“We are hoping and praying that the river releases her, and search and rescue is able to bring her back to us,” Bellows said.
Abigael’s family, who live in Pennsylvania, arrived Friday night in time to join searchers Saturday morning.
Bellows said her daughter has lived in Eugene for the past two years and moved here after falling in love with the area while visiting.
“She is incredibly beautiful. She is smart. She is loving. She is full of hope and positivity. And her energy – it’s too big for this world,” Bellows said.
Bellows said Abigael was a successful student at Duquesne University, but left to pursue interests in the environment and was passionate about sustainable food.
“She came out to the west coast and she fell in love with the lifestyle here,” Bellows said. “She wanted to forge her own path. She wanted to make her own mark in the world.”

FBI Still Looking For 3 Missing Oregon Children

Law enforcement agencies across the country commemorate National Missing Children's Day each year on May 25th. This year, the FBI is recognizing three long-term investigations involving Oregon children. The FBI continues to partner with local law enforcement agencies to provide requested assistance and investigative support in each of these cases.

The FBI's Portland Division is also recognizing two cases involving sisters Shaina Ashley Kirkpatrick and Shausha Latine Henson. Shaina was 3 years old and Shausha was just 2 months old when they disappeared on April 4, 2001. The girls were last seen with their mother en route to Sacramento, California. On April 29, 2001, their mother's body was found outside of Fernley, Nevada, while the whereabouts of the two girls remain unknown.

In 1932, the FBI was given jurisdiction under the "Lindbergh Law" to immediately investigate any reported mysterious disappearance or kidnapping involving a child of "tender age"—usually 12 or younger.

However, the FBI can become involved with any missing child under the age of 18 as an assisting agency to the local police department. There does not have to be a ransom demand, and the child does not have to cross the state lines or be missing for 24 hours.

Research indicates the quicker the reporting of the disappearance or abduction, the more likely the successful outcome in returning the child unharmed. The FBI is fully committed to support local law enforcement partners investigating missing and endangered children.

More information regarding these children and others missing across the country can be found on the FBI's website. If you have any information regarding a missing child, please contact your local FBI field office or your local police department or call 9-1-1. Tips may also be submitted to the FBI through

Undercover human trafficking sting in Portland, Hillsboro leads to 23 people facing charges

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - An undercover human trafficking sting conducted by multiple law enforcement agencies led to 23 people facing charges involving commercial sexual solicitation.
The mission was conducted at two hotels in Portland and Hillsboro.
Undercover investigators communicated online with people seeking sexual acts in exchange for money. The investigators scheduled the encounters at the hotels and then took the suspects into custody when they arrived.“The operation focused on coordinated efforts to break a link in the chain of human trafficking by enforcing state and federal laws, and identifying trafficking victims throughout the Portland metro area,” according to a joint statement from the Gresham Police Department, Hillsboro Police Department, Portland Police Bureau, and Washington County Sheriff's Office.
Two people were arrested at the Hillsboro hotel when police said they arrived seeking a sexual encounter with a minor.
Investigators said Walter Renderos Jr., 29, of Portland, had communicated with someone he believed to be 16 years old through a social networking app.
Toran Tolleson, 21, of Salem, was also arrested after communicating with someone he believed to be 16 years old via another app, according to investigators.
Tolleson and Renderos are facing charges of luring a minor.
In June, a similar enforcement operation resulted in 37 people being charged with commercial sexual solicitation crimes.

Mom, missing kids reunited after 911 caller spots car:

By Jolie Wolfe - email


Three Gresham children who were reported missing Sunday have been found safe thanks to someone who saw information about their grandmother's car on the news.
The children left the home of their 58-year-old grandmother, Barbara Cameron, in northeast Portland on Sunday afternoon. The children's mother called police from her Gresham home at 9:52 p.m. when Cameron and the kids didn't return to her home as planned.
Police feared Cameron may be experiencing mental health issues, and they sent out an alert to media to get the word out. Neither the children nor Cameron had a cell phone, so police were not able to use a "ping" to track her.

Police asked the public to keep an eye out for Cameron's car, a 2000 Toyota Corolla with Oregon license plate number 702BYF. 
At around 6:30 a.m., someone called 911 and said he saw the car in question and was following it in the area of Northeast 141st Avenue and Sandy Boulevard. The 911 caller stayed on the line until Portland police were able to respond and catch up to the car near 162nd Avenue and Glisan Street.
Police confirmed all the children were safe.
The children's mother thanked police and told FOX 12 she hopes her mother gets the help she needs.
She and other family members reunited with the children at the scene where the grandmother's car was stopped.
"I'm very excited and happy and that they're OK," the mother said.
Barbara Cameron went with officers to the Gresham Police Department to be interviewed, but once there, she turned around and left. Because she is not being charged with a crime, police did not stop her.
She told a FOX 12 reporter that the incident was a misunderstanding.
