Police looking for Washington mom after 2 year old found dead at Cannon Beach resort
CANNON BEACH, Ore. A 2-year-old girl was found dead in a Cannon Beach inn, a 13-year-old girl was seriously injured and police are looking for their 40-year-old mother.
Police said they're looking for 40-year-old Jessica Smith of Goldendale, Wash. They said she's driving a gold 2007 Chevy Suburban, license plate APX3141.
Police said Smith is a person of interest in the investigation, but did not call her a suspect.
Police are also looking to talk to her husband, Greg Smith. Court records in Clark County indicate that he filed for divorce on June 30. They also show that Jessica Smith was denied her request for a restraining order against Greg Smith on July 17, with a hearing scheduled for next Wednesday.
Cannon Beach Police Chief Jason Schermerhorn told the Daily Astorian that authorities were called to the Surfsand Resort on Friday morning.
The children were found by housekeeping staff.
