Jackson County Investigators have named Lennie Ames as a person of interest in the search for Stephanie Anne Warner, 43, of Ruch, who has been missing since July 4th. Ames was Warner’s boyfriend at the time of her disappearance and was the last person known to have contact with her.
Wednesday detectives served a search warrant at Warner’s residence in the 9000 block of Highway 238 and seized many items as evidence.
Thursday members of the California Oregon Search and Rescue, including Josephine and Jackson counties, searched a wooded area on BLM property near a camp site occupied by Ames. Eight days earlier a search warrant was served on the camp itself which includes a travel trailer and vehicles. Several items were seized in the search also.
The investigation into Stephanie Warner’s disappearance continues and anyone with relevant information is asked to call the Jackson County Sheriff’s tip line at 541-774-8333.
