KEIZER, OR (KPTV) -

A Woodburn woman has been missing more than three weeks and on Wednesday Keizer police released the identity of a person of interest in her disappearance.

Cynthia Crystal Martinez, 26, was last seen at the Tequila Nights Bar & Grill at 3393 River Road North in Keizer at 2:35 a.m. on July 16.

She was observed leaving the bar with two Hispanic men in a blue 2004 Honda Odyssey minivan. The van was located by investigators and police are now asking anyone who recognizes the vehicle to contact them.

Family members said Martinez is 5 feet 3 inches tall and 145 pounds with long black hair and multiple tattoos, including tattoos on her chest that say “Dominguez” and “Trust No One.”

On Wednesday, Keizer investigators said they had identified the two men seen with Martinez, one of whom is a person of interest. 

Jaime Alvarez-Olivera, 30, was last known to be employed locally as a laborer who harvested berries, police said. He is believed to have left the Marion County area on July 16, a short time after Martinez was last seen with him. 

His whereabouts are currently unknown.

A surveillance image from Tequila Nights was also released Wednesday by detectives that shows Martinez and Alvarez-Olivera leaving the bar at 2:35 a.m. July 16. 

The Keizer Police Department is asking anyone who believes they may have information about where Alvarez-Olivera lived, whom he lived or associated with or whom he may have worked with is asked to contact officers at 503-856-3529.

Anyone with information on Martinez’s disappearance is encouraged to come forward to police and can do so anonymously.

“Cynthia Martinez is the mother of four young children and she has family and friends who are very concerned about her,” Keizer police said. “We would like to find Cynthia and give her family answers as to what happened to her.”
