Twenty-one-year-old Whitney Heichel hasn't been seen since yesterday morning and the circumstances surrounding her disappearance are suspicious to say the least. The young woman didn't show up for work yesterday and her 1999 black Ford Explorer was located abandoned with shattered windows. The vehicle had been plundered.
This is truly a distressing story that is still developing with no coverage by the mainstream media. Heichel's debit card is showing a lot of activity including several ATM withdrawals at at least three different gas stations surrounding the Gresham, Oregon region.
There is one witness in this case so far -- a gas station attendant who claims to have seen Whitney Heichel and an unidentified man. He said she was in the passenger side of her Jeep and the man that was driving was hurried and suspicious. Indeed, this is not looking like a happy ending is in store for the missing woman.
If you've seen the woman pictured above, please contact police in Gresham, Ore., @(503)618-2719.
