VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN) — A continued search for a Clark County woman missing since March 7 on Sunday at the Columbia River produced no additional results.
Daphne Alexander-Christ was a staff assistant at Lakeshore Elementary School. Three weeks ago, the 46-year-old left her home and hasn’t been seen since.
Two days after she left, detectives discovered her black Suzuki Forenza parked at Beacon Rock State Park with her cell phone and keys inside.
Searchers combed through hiking trails and the Columbia River but did not find her.
There is nothing so far to indicate foul play, investigators said.
Keaton Alexander, a freshman at the University of Oregon, told KOIN 6 News he can’t figure out why his mother is gone. He said he spoke with her on the phone two days before she vanished.
Some of Alexander-Christ’s friends, including Erik Hoovestol, from the school she worked at joined the search to discover what happened.
“This family really needs closure. Indications are she went in the water. I know it’s a needle in haystack, but if everyone pitches in, we have a good chance of finding this person,” said Hoovestol.
A Facebook page put together by her loved ones has pictures and information. Hoovestol posted on the page that there is a plan to do a “sweep of the (Columbia) river from Beacon Rock and downstream,” but he is looking for volunteers with boats.
Despite the outreach for volunteers, Hoovestol said only one person showed up on Sunday to help search from Beacon Rock to Beacon Point.
