Anyone who knows the location of Courtney Shriner-Forbs or her husband, Shawn Harley Forbs, is asked to contact 911.

Courtney, 20, is 5-feet tall with hazel eyes and long brown hair. She was last seen wearing a purple peacoat. Shawn Forbes, 21, is approximately 5-feet 7-inches tall, 160 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

The couple was last seen at about 1 p.m. Wednesday in the 3000 block of V Street in Vancouver. Their destination is unknown. They may be traveling with at least one other woman in a 1990s model Green Ford Windstar minivan.

Both Courtney and Harley are developmentally disabled, and Courtney is without her necessary medication.
