The search for a missing 19 year old man from Lafayette has grown to include multiple state and federal law enforcement agencies. Cody Faye Myers of Lafayette was reported missing by family members on Sunday after he failed to return from a trip to Newport.
Myers had planned to attend a jazz festival on Saturday and return that evening according to Yamhill County Sheriff Jack Crabtree. “Cody’s family became alarmed when the normally punctual youth did not return when planned and his cell phone quit receiving calls. Cody’s car was spotted on a Salem gas station surveillance camera being driven by a female with an unidentified male in the passenger seat” Crabtree said. The female was attempting to use a stolen credit card to purchase gasoline and Myers was not in the vehicle. It’s believed he may have come in contact with two murder suspects of the suburban Seattle area who had earlier dumped their car, possibly in the Yamhill County area, a black Jeep Patriot.
Myers vehicle is a white 1999 Plymouth Breeze 4 door (similar to the one in the attached picture) with a sticker bearing the word “Espresso”. It has Oregon license number 025 CCH.
The Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office is being assisted in the case by the Newberg-Dundee, Keizer, Salem and Everett Washington Police Departments, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the Yamhill County Crime Victims Services Department, Oregon State Police and US Marshall’s Service.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Robert Eubanks at 503 434-7506.
