The woman’s black SUV was found abandoned in a parking lot with the windows broken, local station KATU reported.

Heichel apparently left her apartment at 6:45 a.m. yesterday for her 7 a.m. Starbucks shift. She hasn’t been seen since. 

Her husband, Clint said that yesterday was a normal morning, with Heichel kissing him goodbye and leaving for Starbucks, which was just five minutes away from their home.
