Vancouver police say a 61-year-old Vancouver woman’s Tuesday disappearance should be considered suspicious.

According to a Vancouver Police Department statement, Cristina Ase was reported missing Tuesday by her husband. Ase’s coworkers also called police when she never arrived at work that morning.

Her vehicle, a 2013 dark grey Toyota Rav4 with Washington plate AQT1726, was found Wednesday in Vancouver.

“Police are considering Cristina’s disappearance suspicious in nature and highly unusual for her regular pattern of behavior. Her husband and coworkers are offering their full cooperation with law enforcement,” according to a statement from the agency.

Vancouver police believe Ase may have gone to Oregon after leaving her home in the 500 Block of Southeast 123rd Ave., in east Vancouver, about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday. She may have been carrying a black and white bag but police could not provide a clothing description.

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

  • 500 Block of Southeast 123rd Ave., in east Vancouver
  • Glenwood Park – 8800 block of Southeast Claybourne Street, Portland
  • Southeast Flavel Street and 92nd Avenue, Portland

Anyone with information regarding Ase’s location or any information police helpful to this investigation, contact Detective Jason Nicholson at jason.nicholson@cityofvancouver.us or Sgt. Julie Ballou at julie.ballou@cityofvancouver.us.
