Woman is missing two hours of her life, Edmonds police say

She remembers waking up in a grass field with a man kneeling next to her and a woman standing nearby.

EDMONDS — Police in Edmonds are hoping someone can help them figure out what happened to a woman during a two-hour period Sunday morning.

She has told police that she simply doesn’t know, said Edmonds police Sgt. Shane Hawley.

Detectives believe others might have encountered her during that time.

The Shoreline woman, 28, was visiting her fiancé’s family in the 8700 block of Bowdoin Way.

The couple was leaving the house around 12:20 a.m. when he went back inside for a couple of minutes. She was gone when he came out, police reported.

The family called 911 after a futile search.

She was found — with cuts, scrapes and bruises — around 2 a.m. by two people stopping for fuel at a gas station in the 9700 block of Edmonds Way. The woman couldn’t describe how she ended up there. The passersby called her family and took her home.

She told police she remembers waking up in a grass field with a man kneeling next to her and a woman standing nearby. She also remembers running off into a wooded area before finding her way to the gas station.

“We are just trying to figure out what happened in this two-hour period,” Hawley said Wednesday. “There has been a lot of speculation, but we don’t know what, if anything, happened.”

Somewhere along the way, the woman lost a pair of black-strapped sandals she was wearing.

Police hope someone might remember seeing the sandals and can describe where they spotted them. Perhaps, Hawley said, someone might have found them in a front yard and wondered how they got there.

Detectives also would like to talk with whomever might have seen the woman early that morning.

Hawley said she was found about a mile from where she started, in a stretch he described as residential.
