UMATILLA COUNTY, Ore. — A 62-year-old woman who was reported missing Saturday amid the flooding in Umatilla County has been found dead, according to the Umatilla Flood Joint Information Center.
Janet Tobkin Conley, 62, had last been seen at 7 p.m. on Thursday in the Bar M Ranch area of rural Northeast Umatilla County. Her home was surrounded by high water and the road to her home was impassable due to flooding from the Umatilla River.
Conley was found Sunday morning on the Bar M Ranch property by searchers and neighbors. Officials say it appears she was "swept away by rushing water."
"Our sympathies go out to the family and friends of Ms. Conley in this difficult time," said Incident Commander Dwight Johnson, Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant.
Neighbors noticed Conley was missing Friday morning and she was reported missing to the Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday morning.
