Missing Beaverton mom returns home safe
A Beaverton woman who was reported missing last week returned home safe, according to police.
Erin McClintock, 40, was reported missing by her family Monday, Oct. 21 after she didn't show up to her job in Hillsboro. The Washington County Sheriff's Office said McClintock dropped her children off at school in Aloha around 7:15 a.m., then never made it to work and hadn't been seen or heard from.
Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 29, Beaverton police were dispatched to a Fred Meyer grocery store on Southwest Walker Road, where they interviewed McClintock, who had already spoken with her family.
"Ms. McClintock was not injured and told Officers she left last week on her own accord. There is no criminal investigation stemming from this incident," Washington County Sheriff's Office stated in a news release Tuesday evening.
Sgt. Danny DiPietro of the Sheriff's Office said Beaverton police were notified by McClintock's family that she had returned to the area.
"They contacted her and family was there (at the store) as well," DiPietro confirmed Tuesday.
"Ms. McClintock is with her family and is no longer considered to be missing," the Sheriff's Office added.
