The search continues for Tazu Higashi, 79, formerly of Hood River and Parkdale, who was last seen on Jan. 10 at a Lake Oswego shopping center, near her home there.
Higashi, who lived in the Parkdale area until a few years ago, has short-term memory loss and her family thinks she may have headed “home.”
Family and friends did an extensive search in Lake Oswego, Tualatin, Wilsonville and nearby communities Saturday and Sunday, seeking her silver 2005 Dodge Caravan, license plate number 476 BVG.
The Caravan has a handicap parking tag, studded tires and no rims.
In a flyer distributed in Hood River last week, the family speculated that she may have taken a wrong turn off exits in the area around Lake Oswego, like Tualatin, Wilsonville, Stafford, Donald, Aurora or Woodburn, or may have headed to her previous home in Parkdale.
Higashi goes by the name of “Grandma,” and is 4-foot-11- inches tall.
If you should see her please call the police dispatch or detective Lee Fergeson, (503) 635-0238, or her family’s home, (503) 624-4804.
