A 23-year-old Oregon woman who was last seen on Saturday was reported missing under unusual circumstances after someone was seen throwing her cell phone from a car in a fast food parking lot, The Oregonian reports.
Demi Helenius had planned to spend a weekend at the self-help conference Landmark Forum, but after she didn’t contact her parents on Saturday night, they called her phone, said Washington County Sgt. David Thompson to The Oregonian.
A Dairy Queen employee answered her phone, telling her parents that a man went through the drive-thru and turned her phone in, Thompson said.
Detectives contacted this man, who said he saw someone throw the phone from a car in the Dairy Queen parking lot.
Helenius’s own car was found nine miles away, with no sign of foul play, Thompson said.
If anyone has any information regarding her whereabouts, they should call 503-846-2500.
