KEIZER, Ore. (KOIN) — Keizer Police have named a person of interest in the case of missing 26-year-old Woodburn mother.

Cynthia Martinez was last seen at Tequila Nights Bar & Grill at 3393 River Road North in Keizer at about 2:35 a.m. on July 16. She was seen leaving with 2 Hispanic men in a blue Honda Odyssey minivan.

The van has since been located, but officers hope anyone who recognizes it will come forward with information.

One of the men she was seen leaving with, 30-year old Jaime Alvarez-Olivera, is a person of interest in the case.

Alvarez-Olivera is believed to have left the Marion County area on July 16, a short time after Martinez was last seen with him. He has not been located since.

Alvarez-Olivera was last thought to reside in the Woodburn area, however investigators have not been able to determine exactly where he resided or with whom prior to July 16th.

Detectives said Alvarez-Olivera was last known to be employed locally as a laborer who harvested berries, but has not shown up to work in almost a month.

The Keizer Police Department is trying to talk to anyone who may know him or where he may be.

Martinez has 4 young children and her family is concerned about her.

Angelica Castillo, Martinez’s mom, told KOIN 6 News, “Our family is broke up. Here children need her, we need her. We’re just asking anybody with any information, please, please call the tip line…We just need our baby back.”

“My sister is terrific. She’s a good sister, a good mother. We just want her back home already. We just miss her so much,” Elizabeth Martinez said.

Martinez is described as about 5-foot-3-inches-tall, with long black hair and has several tattoos that say “Dominguez,” and “Trust No One” on her chest.
