This afternoon, the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) notified Portland Police Bureau they are suspending the search for missing 37-year-old Alissa Marie McCrann, pending new information or developments.

MCSO Search and Rescue (SAR) personnel along with MCSO Trail Hornets and SAR teams the from Washington County Sheriff's Office, Pacific Northwest, Portland Mountain Rescue, Mountain Wave Communications and a Hood River County SAR air unit have searched over 150 miles of the trail system in the Columbia Gorge. No signs of McCrann have been found.

Over 100 volunteer search and rescue personnel have participated during search efforts. A reported possible sighting of McCrann on Saturday afternoon by two hikers indicated she was wearing running clothes and shoes but had no emergency supplies with her. Searchers were deployed to saturate search coverage on the trails around Franklin Ridge but no signs were found.

Over 50 searchers have been deployed today, December 24, 2015, rechecking and searching areas to ensure any possible leads or locations of interest reported from the day previous were thoroughly covered. SAR volunteers have encountered increasingly difficult conditions throughout the course of this search due to worsening weather and conditions on the trails.

Over a foot of new snow fell at higher elevations overnight. Hazards on the trails including ice accumulations, debris and washouts have hampered search efforts. MCSO SAR coordinators have consulted with an Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) wilderness doctor, MCSO Command and the Portland Police Bureau's Missing Persons Unit prior to making the decision to suspend search efforts pending new information or developments in the investigation.

Anyone with additional information should contact the Missing Persons Unit by email,

Anyone seeing McCrann should immediately call 9-1-1.
