DUNDEE, Ore. -- Searchers will be zeroing on several parks in the effort to find clues in the disappearance of a Dundee mother of two missing since Thursday.

Jennifer Huston, 38, disappeared after leaving home to run errands around 5:45 p.m., according to a police timeline.  She withdrew a small amount of cash from a local bank, gassed up her SUV and then her cell phone stopped working a short time later. Her husband reported her missing to police on Friday.

Investigators said they have not found any evidence indicating a crime or threat to the public. During a press briefing on Monday, police said they were following up on tips from the public and also working to obtain video from surveillance cameras at area businesses which Huston may have visited or driven past.

Huston's family told KGW that searchers would be targeting parks on Tuesday, including the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge.  They said the number of people who have come forward to help - friends and complete strangers - has been nothing short of amazing.

Katie Wilson, who lives in the area, told KGW Dundee is a very small community where everyone pulls together.

"It definitely makes you realize there is some good left in the world, there's definitely a lot of good humanity out there. People are definitely getting involved," Wilson said. "We are very small so everybody is trying to find her, everybody wants to bring her home."

Huston was last seen driving a dark green 1999 Lexus SUV with Oregon License number WXH 011. She was wearing black yoga pants one the day she disappeared, along with a black zip-up sweatshirt and Nike tennis shoes that were black and pink. Anyone with information about her whereabouts was urged to call police at 503-538-8321.

Investigators have said they consider Huston's disappearance a missing person case, but her husband Kellan Huston and other family members said they're sure she would not have left on her own.

The family has been posting information on the Find Jennifer Huston Facebook page.

Meantime a prayer service will be held to support Huston's family and friends. The service will begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday night, at Newberg's Hillside Fellowship.
