Benton County undersheriff Greg Ridler said Suzanne Durheim, 65, didn’t show up for work Monday at Samaritan Health Plans in Corvallis.

BROWNSVILLE, Ore. -- A Brownsville woman is missing, and local law enforcement officials are searching the Willamette River outside Corvallis.

Benton County undersheriff Greg Ridler said Suzanne Durheim, 65, didn’t show up for work Monday at Samaritan Health Plans in Corvallis.

Durheim’s family and the county began the search for her Jan. 7. They found tracks that went off the road near milepost 1 of Highway 20 near Hewlett-Packard.

They reached out to the Benton County Sheriff Office. Deputies found evidence that suggests a vehicle went off the road into the river in that area.

Searchers found a fender flare at the location matching the color of Durheim’s vehicle, and deputies are searching the river for a vehicle.

Durheim was driving a red 2003 F-150 Ford pickup with a camper shell.

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office has been working with the Linn County Sheriff’s Office during the investigation.
