The Vancouver Police Department is working with police in Oregon to locate a missing Vancouver woman, whose disappearance is believed to be suspicious.

Cristina Ase, 61, was reported missing March 26 by her husband. Ase’s co-workers also called police when she didn’t arrive at work in West Linn, Ore., that morning, according to a police department statement.

Police are actively investigating Ase’s disappearance, and a person of interest has not been identified. Ase’s husband, family and friends have continued to cooperate with law enforcement.

The police department is working with the Portland Police Bureau and West Linn Police Department on the investigation.

Ase was last heard from about 5:30 a.m., and it is believed she drove her dark gray Toyota RAV4 with Washington plates AQT1726 into Oregon after leaving her home in the 500 block of Southeast 123rd Avenue, in east Vancouver. Her vehicle was located Wednesday in Vancouver, police said.

Police are asking Oregon and Washington residents for assistance in locating video footage of Ase or her vehicle within a quarter-mile radius of the following locations between 4 p.m. March 25 and 5 p.m. March 27:

  • 500 block of Southeast 123rd Avenue, Vancouver;
  • Glenwood Park, 8800 block of Southeast Claybourne Street, Portland;
  • Southeast Flavel Street and 92nd Avenue, Portland.
