PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Authorities suspended their search Thursday for a 37-year-old Portland woman who has been missing since Saturday.

A group of hikers told investigators they believe they saw McCrann trail running on Saturday. She wasn’t dressed for snow or an extended stay in the woods.

Search and rescue crews spent the last 2 days scouring nearby trails looking for any signs of her. Teams utilized 3 air scent dogs in the hopes of picking up a track.

“We don’t know if the person went for a walk or went hiking, we don’t know,” Multnomah County Sheriff’s Lt. Steve Alexander said. “Out of an abundance of caution we want to be out here and checking that.”

At the peak of Thursday’s search, 46 people were combing the trails. Together they covered more than 150 miles.

Her father told KOIN 6 News he’s worried she may be hurt. He said his daughter’s disappearance “couldn’t have happened at a worse time” and that he “can’t say enough about what the rescuers have done.”

Friends and family held a vigil for McCrann, the mother of a 13-year-old, in downtown Portland on Tuesday night. They said she’s an active member of the local dragon boat community.

“She spreads the love, type of friend everyone needs and should have,” Eric Ledeky said.

McCrann finished a run in the area of Portland Adventist Medical Center on Saturday morning before leaving her home in the Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood, police said.

She hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

McCrann didn’t show up for work on Monday. She has no known mental health or medical issues.

She is 5-feet-3-inches tall, 145 pounds with black hair, brown eyes and glasses.

Her car, a 2011 Mazda CX7, has Oregon license plates 636GTS and a large Portland Timbers “T” sticker on the back window.

Police say there’s nothing to indicate foul play in her disappearance.

Anyone with information on McCrann’s whereabouts should call 911 immediately.
