Missing Couple and Grandson Enroute to Oregon Coast Found SafelySalem-News.com
Police call it a happy ending. At approximately 8:15 PM, the missing couple, Mr. and Mrs. Brosnahan, were watching the news and discovered that they were presumed missing. They immediately contacted their family. They and their grandson are all fine.
(OREGON CITY) - A missing couple and their five-year old grandson believed to be missing are safe and sound. Their daughter, the mother of the small child, had called them in missing yesterday.
A citizen reportted to the OSP tip that the family had stayed at the Viking Cottage Condos in Newport on August 7th and 8th.
State Police sent a trooper there who verified that they had stayed there those two nights. Not long after that discovery, the family saw the newscast.
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, the Oregon State Police, and our public safety partners would first like to thank our local news media for the attention that they provided to this story. We would also like to thank the citizens who provided tips that helped law enforcement in their efforts to locate the family.
Joseph Edward Brosnahan, Jr. and Nancy Kay Brosnahan, the couple who were missing, reside in Oregon City.
The Sheriff's Office and State Police began their coordinated effort today to locate the missing grandparents and grandson -- who were reportedly traveling to the coast in a silver four-door 2001 Buick LeSabre.
Susan Kay Brosnahan, the missing couple's daughter, reported her parents missing on Wednesday, August 8th, to the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.
At that time, information on the missing persons and their vehicle was entered into the Law Enforcement Data System, a computer system that alerts law enforcement if the vehicle or occupants are detected by emergency personnel in the field.
All law-enforcement authorities were notified in Oregon and Washington to be on the lookout for this missing vehicle and occupants. The Long Beach, Washington Police inspected all motels and lodging in their jurisdiction.
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office even had their airplane involved in the search.
