DUNDEE, OR (KPTV) -

Friends and family are combing local parks and trails in the search for missing Dundee woman Jennifer Huston.

Huston, a married mother of two young boys, was last seen Thursday after leaving her home to run errands.

On Tuesday, people close to her said they will continue doing whatever they can to find her.

"You want to go and try to find her, you go and look and drive around, don't know where to drive, though," said neighbor Wendy Brooks. "Just looking for any sign that she went off the road or that her car's hidden away somewhere."

On Tuesday, search groups went to Champoeg State Park and the Tualatin Wildlife Refuge, as well as other areas throughout the community, in hopes of finding some kind of clue about her disappearance.

The Newberg-Dundee Police Department has pieced together a timeline of Huston's last known activities.

At 5:45 p.m. Thursday she left her Dundee home. Surveillance cameras showed her getting a small amount of cash from the ATM at Oregon First Community Credit Union in Newberg, about three miles away, at 6 p.m. Ten minutes later, she was again caught on camera in her Green Lexus SUV at the Circle K gas station on Portland Road.

At 6:25 p.m., police said her phone was turned off or stopped working.

Police said based on surveillance images and witness statements they did not believe anyone else was in her SUV.

Huston's husband, parents and family asked for privacy on Tuesday. The previous day, Kallen Huston was flanked by his wife's parents and other family members as he answered questions at a press conference in Newberg.

"I'd like to also stress this is totally unlike her," Kallen Huston said. "She's a devoted mother. She's just a very good person. For her to do something like this is completely out of the norm. All of her friends would agree."

He asked people to keep an eye out on the side of highways and behind buildings, saying it's possible his wife had crashed her SUV somewhere out of direct sight.

Kallen Huston and other family members have been interviewed by detectives as part of the investigation.

Police on Monday said there was no known criminal link in regards to this case. However, detectives said they're continuing to follow-up on tips and possible leads.

Jennifer Huston is 5'7" with blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing black and pink Nike shoes and black yoga pants. She drives a dark green 1999 Lexus LX 470 with Oregon plates WXH 011.

Anyone with information should call Detective Ryan Simmons at 503-554-8954 or ryan.simmons@newbergoregon.gov.
