Oregon authorities planned to resume the search Thursday for a Gresham woman who disappeared two days ago under suspicious circumstances.

Police say the husband of 21-year-old Whitney Heichel reported her missing Tuesday after she did not show up for work at her job at a nearby Starbucks in the Portland suburb.

KATU reports her car was found late Tuesday morning in a Wood Village parking lot with the passenger side window smashed.

Investigators believe the car was seen at Dodge Park north of Sandy and at Larch Mountain in the Columbia River Gorge. KATU reports that on Wednesday at the park, investigators found broken window glass and examined tire trucks in the mud.

Clint Heichel says he has no idea why his wife never made it to work.
