LYNNWOOD — Damian Cianci has been looking for his daughter for almost two weeks.

He drove 19-year-old Crystal Ciance to an appointment in Lynnwood just before 1 p.m. on Jan. 8. He hasn’t seen her since.

The young woman had been struggling with drug addiction for about a year when she wound up in a hospital, her father said. She told him she wanted to turn her life around and entered treatment.

Crystal Ciance was living with her father at his Camano Island home for about two weeks when she disappeared, Damian Cianci said. He worries she may have been hurt.

Police haven’t been able to help much, he said.

Detectives at this time don’t suspect foul play in the woman’s disappearance, Lynnwood police spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said. They are treating the case as a missing person report.

“At this point, we have no reason to believe that she was the victim of a crime,” she said.

Crystal Ciance is described as 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighing about 100 pounds. Anyone who may have seen her is asked to call 911.
