DUNDEE, Ore. – Police have finished their official search for missing Dundee mom Jennifer Huston unless new information comes to light. 

Huston disappeared after leaving home to run errands around 5:45 p.m. on July 24, according to a police timeline. Her husband Kallen Huston reported her missing the following day.

On August 1, Yamhill County officials conducted a final aerial search for Huston, checking rural roads and remote locations.

A plane searched more than 150 square miles of Yamhill County for several hours Friday morning but found no sign of Huston, according to Captain Tim Svenson of Yamhill County police.

Svenson said aerial and ground searches have now come to a halt, and won't be resumed unless police receive new information.

"After [Friday's] flight, the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office will have covered all rural areas of Yamhill County and no further search efforts are planned for Yamhill County," a spokesperson for the sheriff's office said. "If additional information arises, search efforts will be resumed as necessary."

Police told KGW Huston’s picture has been distributed to all law enforcement agencies in the western states.

Meanwhile, Huston’s family is making sure her picture and story remain in the public eye, and plan to hand out a flier at festivals, events and communities where she liked to visit.

A search of the San Juan islands in Washington state, where Huston liked to visit, turned up no clues.
