Reward Offered In Watterson Disappearance

The Washington County Sheriff's Office, in partnership with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help to locate a 20-year-old woman missing since December 22, 2019.

On Monday, December 23, 2019, Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies received reports of a missing woman in a wooded area near the City of North Plains. Allyson Joy Watterson, 20, was last seen during the day on Sunday, December 22, while she was with 21-year-old Benjamin Garland.

After Allyson was reported missing, Garland was arrested for multiple charges unrelated to the disappearance of Ms. Watterson. One of those charges included auto theft, as he was driving a stolen red 2001 Ford F-150 pick-up around the time of Allyson's disappearance. The truck was recovered by law enforcement.

Allyson is described as a white female, 20 years old, with brown hair and blue eyes. She is approximately 5'7" and 120 lbs.

Allyson has a tattoo of an eye on the front left shoulder area along with a tattoo of a fairy sitting on a spider web on her left forearm.

She was last seen wearing an orange/yellow-colored hooded sweatshirt, black jeans and white and blue Adidas sneakers. She was also carrying a red backpack.

Investigators and search and rescue volunteers have spent thousands of hours searching an area of approximately 1,600 acres and did not locate Allyson.

Crime Stoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards of up to $2,500 cash for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in any unsolved felony crime and tipsters can remain anonymous.
