ASTORIA, OR (KPTV) - Search and rescue crews have suspended the ground search for a 29-year-old woman last seen on the Astoria Riverwalk.

Maya Sanders was last seen in downtown Astoria Tuesday afternoon while crossing Marine Drive at 16th Street.

Police found some of her property on 6th Street and a scarf was found near the Comfort Suites on the Riverwalk.

In an update from Astoria 911 Dispatch Thursday morning, officials said several tips about Sanders were received Wednesday. One of the tips confirmed that she was spotted on the North Tongue Point industrial area around 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Investigators gathered surveillance footage from several cameras in the area and found that Sanders was recorded alone, walking north on the pier and out of the frame of the shot.

Dispatch said she was not recorded returning to shore after entering the pier.

Clatsop County Search and Rescue conducted ground and water searches, but were unable to yield any clues on Sanders.

Ground search was suspended Friday, but crews do have plans to return to the area to conduct shoreline searches.

The Clatsop County Marine Patrol will continue to operate in the area over the next few weeks.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Astoria Police Department at 503-325-4411.
