PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Search crews on Thursday suspended the search for a missing Portland woman near Multnomah Falls, pending new information or developments. 

Crews have searched more than 150 miles of trails in the Columbia Gorge, according to the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office. No signs of the missing woman, 37-year-old Alissa McCrann, have been found. 

On Wednesday, hikers reported seeing a woman who looked like McCrann on Saturday on Franklin Ridge, about 12 miles from Multnomah Falls. The hikers said the woman was wearing only running clothes. Crews were deployed and focused their search on the Franklin Ridge area, but no signs of MCrann were found. 

More than 50 searchers were out Thursday rechecking and searching areas. Crews have encountered increasingly difficult conditions through the course of the search due to worsening weather and trail conditions. Hazards on the trails, including ice, debris and washouts have also hampered search efforts.

McCrann’s car was found in the Multnomah Falls parking lot Tuesday night. Friends say they have not heard from her since Saturday, December 19. Police said McCrann finished a run near Portland Adventist Medical Center Saturday morning, and then left her home in the Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood.

Loved ones gathered at a Portland church to pray for McCrann to return safely.

McCrann is described as 5'3", 145 pounds, black hair, brown eyes, and normally wears glasses.

Anyone with additional information should email the Missing Persons Unit at missing@portlandoregon.gov. Anyone who sees McCrann is asked to call 911 immediately.
