PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Snohomish County Sheriff’s office is searching a rural area in Arlington, Washington for Patrick Shunn and his wife Monique Patenaude.
The couple was reported missing by their neighbors Tuesday. Shunn was last seen at his work in Kirkland on Monday. Patenaude was last seen around 1 p.m. Monday near the couple’s house.
Authorities located 2 vehicles previously reported missing that belong to the couple. A tan, 2000 Land Rover Discovery with Washington plates AR02639 and a black, 1995 Jeep with Washington plates WB02789 were found in a remote, wooded area near Oso.
Both cars appear to have gone over an embankment, deputies said. They are reportedly located in the same general area of each other.
Deputies say the couple’s disappearance is considered suspicious because it is unusual for them to not be in contact with family and friends.
The couple has ties to Oregon City and Patrick’s brother Erik is pleading for help via social media.
People with information are asked to call the Snohomish County Sheriff’s office tip line at 425.388.3845.
