The police in Portland, Oregon, have been seeking the whereabouts of Jeannie Enyeart, who disappeared while driving to Vancouver, WA, last month with her fiance Jon French.
Jeannie, a 47-year-old mom of two and an assistant nurse, was last heard from on Saturday, January 27. On the day she vanished, Jeannie spoke to her daughter, Alex Goldstein Enyeart, who later said that everything seemed fine.
The soon-to-be-married couple were reportedly in the process of moving and had set out for Vancouver to collect some items from a storage unit. The cops later found the crashed and unoccupied car in Stevenson in Skamania County, Washington.
KATU ABC is now reporting that fiance, Jon French, has been taken into custody by the Portland Police. Multnomah County jail booking records confirm that 33-year-old French has been arrested and charged.
French is facing charges of second-degree murder and abuse of a corpse.
Last week, the Portland Police Bureau issued a public plea for help locating Jeannie. However, they have not yet released any further information on the case or announced the arrest of French.
Yesterday, some news outlets reported that Jeannie’s remains had been found in the trunk of her car; however, these reports are unconfirmed.Watch the Latest on our YouTube Channel
Jeannie Enyeart’s family just wants their loved one to come home
A GoFundMe page has been set up to collect donations for Jeannie’s family. The page creator, Kiley Eddy, described Jeannie as a “daughter, a mother, a sister an [a]untie, and a best friend.” They said they hoped to use donations to pay for a search and rescue effort and maybe a private detective for their missing loved one.
Jeannie’s mother, Helen Eskelson, told reporters, “The hardest part is we know how caring Jeannie has always been, even as a child.
Eskelson added, “She had a gift to help care for and nurture family, and that was just her disposition. There wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t hear from her.”
Jeannie’s daughter, Alex, said, “I love her. She’s the sweetest woman that I’ve ever met, honestly, in my life, and I just want her home more than anything.”
