Search for Oregon woman, 20, suspended after volunteers scour thousands of acres to no avail

Authorities in Oregon have suspended their search for a woman who disappeared earlier this month after going on a hike.

Allyson Watterson, 20, was reported missing on Dec. 22, roughly 30 hours after she was last seen hiking in a wooded area near North Plains with her boyfriend, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. Her family hadn’t heard from her since Dec. 20.
