LANE COUNTY, Ore.-- A Clackamas County couple, Jessica Johansen (34) and David Proffitt (35), was arrested Friday night by the Lane County Sheriff's Office for several charges including one count of first degree rape, one count of second degree rape and three counts of first degree sexual abuse. Both Johansen and Proffitt were each charged with these crimes.

This comes after the Oregon Department of Human Services sought the public's help in June to search for the couple, a group of missing siblings and the siblings' grandmother, Lorri Proffitt.

The missing siblings were identified as 12-year-old Leilia Johansen, 5-year-old Adisenn Proffitt, 5-year-old Ansen Proffitt and 9-year-old Izabella Proffitt.

ODHS said the children went missing on May 27 and are believed to be in danger. 

It is still unclear where the children are.

Court documents show the couple was first indicted back in November 2019 in Clackamas County for one count of rape in the first degree, one count of rape in the second degree, one count of sodomy in the first degree, one count of sodomy in the second degree and three counts of first degree sexual assault.

The documents also say the couple allegedly sexually assaulted a child. 

Johansen and Proffitt were reportedly released from custody in April 2020 with the following conditions:

  • No direct or indirect contact with victims
  • Obey all laws
  • Sign waiver of extradition
  • Keep the court informed of current residence at all times
  • Not leave State of Oregon without permission of the Court
  • No contact with non-family minors
  • 8 p.m. curfew at reported residence
