NEWPORT, Wash. — Police are asking for help finding a missing Newport woman who was last seen a week and a half ago. 

Christine Blackburn was last seen on security video on August 12 at 7:30 in the morning. She was driving eastbound on Highway 2 from Three Mile Corner Cafe in Bonners Ferry. 

Blackburn’s husband reported her missing on August 17. 

Her family told police she had been searching for isolated property for sale in northeast Washington, Idaho and western Montana. 

Blackburn has a history of leaving a few days at a time without telling people but has never gone this long without contacting family.
