NORTH PLAINS, Oregon – During its third week, the search for a missing Oregon woman has been suspended in a specific area. However, Rescue commander Tony Morris of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office announced Saturday that it is suspending the active search for Allyson Watterson, a 20-year-old woman who has been missing for nearly a week. However, police are still searching in other areas. “If I believed she was in an area I could find her, this wouldn’t be getting suspended,” said Morris on Saturday evening. “We’ve just chased everything we had.” Povolny said that even though they were suspending the immediate search of the area, members of the public should not go out and search those areas for Watterson on their own. All the areas they’ve been searching are private property, he said. 20-year-old Allyson Joy Watterson was last seen on Sunday, December 22 near North Plains, Oregon. Washington County Detective Mark Povolny said there had been a 30-hour delay between the time Watterson was last seen and the time she was reported missing. “We’re trying to put together what happened during that time.” Povolny said. "She may no longer be in that area. Rescue c ...

Most members of Oregon’s congressional delegation released statements Friday condemning President Donald Trump’s decision to assassinate Iranian general Qassim Suleimani. The U.S. senators and representatives focused primarily on the need for congressional approval to declare war. “If we are not careful, President Trump’s impulsive recklessness will lead the United States into yet another endless war in the Middle East,” Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., said in a statement. DeFazio stressed that the U.S. Constitution grants Congress the power to declare war, not the president. “If he intends to engage U.S. forces in hostile action, President Trump must immediately convene Congress, share the intelligence that precipitated this strike, and ask for authority under the War Powers Act,” DeFazio said. “There is still time to stop this risky escalation, but Congress must assert its constitutionally-granted war powers immediately to do so.” Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., echoed that sentiment in his statement. “In the interest of national security, Congress needs to reassert its constitutional responsibility before any further escalation,” Blumenauer said. “We cannot trust t ...
