Wash. ferry tip hasn't led to missing Oregon woman

FRIDAY HARBOR, Wash. (AP) -- The San Juan County, Washington, sheriff's office says it is working with the local community and the Washington State Ferries system but so far has been unable to confirm a report that a missing Dundee, Oregon, woman might be in the San Juan Islands of northwest Washington.

KPTV reports (http://is.gd/m0jXOL ) that the sheriff's office said Monday it has received "no information confirming the presence of Jennifer Huston in the San Juan Islands." Island authorities say they will remain alert for any information on the woman.

Investigators were checking out a report that the missing woman was spotted late last week on the ferry out of Anacortes to Friday Harbor in the San Juans.

A couple who notified deputies told KPTV that they saw a woman matching Huston's description driving a car that matched Huston's car.

The 38-year-old woman was last seen July 24 running errands. A search was conducted in Oregon.

Huston's family says she spent time in the San Juans in the past.
