(CBS Seattle) — Police in Port Townsend have formed a task force that includes an FBI agent to search for a missing Sequim woman, according to the Peninsula Daily News.
Lauryn R. Garrett went missing on the evening of Thursday, May 1 and was last seen at the Haines Place Park and Ride near the Safeway supermarket on Sims Way.
Authorities thought they had caught a break in the case after footage from a surveillance camera showed a woman in her 20s allegedly attempting to cash a $37 check that belonged to Garett. However, the woman who tried to cash the check was identified, interviewed by police, and was subsequently ruled out as having any relation to Garrett’s disappearance. Police concluded the check was not made out to Garrett.
Fred Garrett says his 23-year-old daughter contacted him on the last day she was seen. He says she called him on a borrowed cell phone and told him she was planning on catching a bus from Port Townsend to Sequim.
Police say they do not have any “credible leads” at this time.
Garrett is 5 feet, 7 inches tall; weighs between 120 and 130 pounds; and has brown hair and hazel eyes.
She has a tattoo of a bird behind her left ear and a tattoo of Washington state on her right wrist.
Anyone with information about Garrett’s whereabouts should call Port Townsend police at 360-385-3831, ext. 1 or, if it’s an emergency matter, 9-1-1.
