The Camas Police Department requests the public’s help with finding a 23-year-old Camas woman who left her home this morning during what her family called a manic episode, according to police.

The missing woman, 23-year-old Marissa Faubion, left home shortly before 9 a.m. today. She doesn’t have a vehicle but has hitchhiked in the past, police said in a news release. Police said a lead indicated she recently may have been in the town of Lyle in the Columbia River Gorge.

“Faubion was recently diagnosed with significant mental health issues and has been treated in hospitals,” the news release said. “She refused her medication and isn’t capable of caring for herself.”

Police released a photo of Faubion and said she was last seen wearing a long-sleeve, light-blue Bernie Sanders shirt, cotton sweatpants, black tennis shoes and a black backpack. Police described her as 5-foot-3 and about 155 pounds. They said she has blue eyes, an olive skin tone and shoulder-length, straight brown hair.

Those who recognizer her or who come into contact with her are asked to call their local law enforcement agency, police said.
