Nothing New in Case of Missing Ferry Rider

January 21st, 2009 by ed friedrich

The disappearance of a Bellevue woman Jan. 13 after boarding a Seattle-to-Bainbridge ferry remains a mystery, Sgt. Trent Cain of the Washington State Patrol said Wednesday.  Detectives continue to follow up leads. “Basically it’s a missing-person case at this point,” Cain said.

Lynn Stafford-Yilmaz’s Ford Aerostar van was left on the 10:55 p.m. ferry, and her keys and purse were upstairs on the boat. Security camera film and ferry workers weren’t able to confirm that she was actually on board, however.

Stafford-Yilmaz is 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

Anybody with information is asked to call Washington State Patrol Detective Dave Killeen at (360) 405-6650.
