DUNDEE, Ore. - Family and friends of a mother from Dundee launched an organized social media campaign after they say Jennifer Huston, 38, never came home on Thursday night.

By Saturday afternoon, the family's "Find Jennifer Huston" Facebook page had gained more than 2,000 likes.

Huston left her husband and two boys on Thursday evening to run errands but never returned, says her father, Bill Turner.

Newberg-Dundee Police confirmed they were gathering details about Huston's whereabouts although it is not aware of any suspicious circumstances or foul play, spokesman Jeff Kosmicki told KATU on Saturday morning.

Police said there is no evidence of any crime, nor any reason to believe Huston disappeared under suspicious circumstances.

Even so, family members insist Huston would never leave on her own accord and are asking the public to help find her.

The family reviewed cell phone and bank records and said they found no activity beyond a small purchase at the gas station Thursday where she was running errands.

Huston's father said he also gained access to her email and Facebook accounts but was not able to find anything suspicious in the days leading up to her disappearance.

Huston's iPhone was turned off and not able to be tracked, said Turner, who said he tried using the locator feature included in the software but was not successful.

Newberg-Dundee Police were not responding to multiple calls for updates on Saturday.

We will update this story when more information becomes available.
