CENTRAL POINT, Ore. – Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) detectives are looking for a Central Point man and woman who have not been seen in nearly four weeks.  Family members reported them missing on October 24, 2018. 

Detectives say Christopher Dean Vestal, 30, and Katherine Mary Lou Rowden (AKA Mitchell), 29, of the 500-block of Judge Lane, were last seen on October 6 in Medford.  Family members believe the two were picked up by an unknown male with plans to buy a new vehicle and to go on a three-day camping trip.

Family members have not been able to reach them and they have not updated their social media profiles.  Rowden did not return to work after October 6.  Family members reported the two are known to travel, but they are always good about staying in contact. 

Vestal is described as a white male with blue eyes and blond hair.  He is five-feet, two-inches tall and weighs approximately 115 pounds. Rowden is a white female with brown eyes and blond hair.  She is five-feet, five-inches tall and weighs approximately 160 pounds.  Both Vestal and Rowden have several tattoos.
