Missing woman was in the local area


Dena Kline, an 80-year-old Wilsonville woman who went missing over the weekend, was spotted early Saturday morning at a tavern at Wanker's Corner in the Stafford area.

Previously, the last known sighting was at a tavern in Oregon City about an hour ealier.

Despite the new information and search efforts by air, water and land, Clackamas County Sheriff's detectives said Wednes-day they had not found Kline or her vehicle, a 1990 teal-colored, four-door Honda Accord with Idaho license plate number K332915.

According to deputies, Kline visited the Corner Saloon at the intersection of Southwest Bor-land Road and Southwest Staf-ford Road at 1:30 a.m. Saturday and asked for directions to a mobile home park.

A customer apparently thought she was referring to a mobile home park in Tualatin and gave directions accordingly. Kline lives at a mobile home park in Wilsonville.

The sheriff's office continues to ask the public for help finding Kline, who left to pick up a medical prescription Saturday and never arrived.

On Monday evening, the sheriff's office announced using a new 'mass telephone' calling system to dial Oregon City-area residents, broadcasting a pre-recorded description of Kline to local phone numbers. The calling area later included portions of Lake Oswego following the report of her stopping at the Corner Saloon.

Kline was pulled over by police twice in the span of four hours Friday night. A Newberg officer stopped Kline for driving the wrong way on Highway 99W around 7 p.m. Then, at about 10:45 p.m., Molalla police pulled Kline over because they thought she was a drunk driver.

If anyone sees Kline or her vehicle they are asked to call 911 immediately.
