Ada County Sheriff says Deborah Hendrichs' Toyota Rav4 was found on the side of I-84 near Meacham, Oregon, on Thursday. Hendrichs was not in the vehicle and investigators continue to look for her, according to Ada County Sheriff.


Ada County Sheriff's Office deputies are looking for a 56-year-old Deborah Hendrichs, of Star, left home on Monday just after 9 a.m. Family members say she turned off her cell phones and left home in a black 2012 Toyota Rav 4 with the license plate number DCU94.

A tweet from the Ada County Sheriff's Office says Hendrichs left without important medication.

Her family suspects Hendrichs may have driven to the mountains but are not sure where. Deborah did not take her purse, warm clothes or essential medication she would need for the mountains.

Deborah Hendrichs is about 5'5, has brown hair and was last seen wearing black leggings and a black shirt.
