Search continues for Holly Berry
The search for a missing 35-year old Coos Bay woman, last seen January 3, 2013, continues by Bay Area law enforcement agencies. According to a news release from CBPD, a reward of $2,000 for information leading to Holly is being offered. A news release from CBPD, "Holly Berry is a 35 year old woman who has been living in the Coos Bay/North Bend area for that past several years; most recently at the Bay Bridge Apartments on Norman Avenue in Coos Bay. She is a generally considered by those who know her as a very shy, sweet person who enjoys knitting. Holly works part-time at the North Bend Library and is also known to spend time at the Shama House and Pony Village Mall in North Bend. Because Holly does not have a vehicle, she routinely walks or utilizes the bus or taxi cabs for transportation. Holly does have some mental health concerns and is believed to be without her medication. She was last seen walking eastbound on Newmark Avenue near the intersection of LaClair Street on Thursday, January 3, 2012 at approximately 4:15 pm. Since that time, Holly has not been seen nor had contact with her parents, which is very unusual for her. Since Holly was reported missing, the Coos Bay Police Department has been conducting an investigation looking for any information which might help to shed light on Holly’s location. Although it has not happened in the previous several years, Holly has “wandered off” on multiple occasions in the past during times of high anxiety. Because of our wet cold winter weather here on the Southern Oregon. Coast, this is a very serious concern. Multiple searches of the neighborhoods and wooded areas around Holly’s last known location have been conducted without any positive results. The Coos Bay Police Department, North Bend Police Department, Coos County Sheriff’s Office, Coquille Tribal Police Department, Coos County Search and Rescue, and Coast Guard Helicopters have all provided assistance during these efforts. There has also been a significant effort by community members who have assisted searching those areas and by contacting residences and businesses passing out missing person flyers. Unfortunately, to date, Holly has not yet been located. Through working with our local media partners, we have been able to make the community aware of Holly’s disappearance and have also received dozens of tips from the public. Detectives have been conducting interviews with Holly’s friends and family and have been following up on all of the information developed. Although we have not located her through this point, we will continue to follow up on any tips or leads. It is also important to note that, although there is no indication Holly was the victim of violence or foul play, our agency is not ruling out that possibility. Anyone with any information about Holly Berry or her whereabouts is strongly encouraged to contact the Coos Bay Police Department at (541) 269-8911. Additionally, Holly’s family has recently posted a reward of $2,000 for anyone who provides new information which helps to find Holly."
