Jennifer Huston Search Update: Missing Woman Possibly Spotted in Washington State

Jennifer Huston, the missing Oregon woman, may have been spotted on a ferry in Washington state.

A couple visiting Friday Harbor believes they saw Huston boarding a ferry from Anacortes to the island.

Their description of the vehicle matches it and San Juan county Sheriff deputies are working on obtaining surveillance video from the ferry.

“The information that we’ve received is that there was a female on the boat, on the 9 o’clock ferry sailing from Anacortes to Friday Harbor on Thursday morning July 31,” San Juan County Under sheriff Bruce Distler told KPTV.

“The woman we talked to also identified a green car, possibly a 99 Lexus, with cracked windshield although she couldn’t give us a license plate.”

Huston’s husband and father told KATU News on Sunday that they’re aware of the tip.

“It’s been an emotional time for the family. Lots of ups and downs,” said Kallen Huston, Jennifer’s husband. “These leads get us excited for a short bit, then reality sets back in and it’s been difficult.”

Kallen Huston said the family is waiting to get confirmation of any leads.

“The islands are small and it should not take a long time to search,” he said. “We’ve vacationed many times there in the past.”
