UPDATE: A missing Centralia woman and her two grandchildren have been found alive and safe near the Packwood area of eastern Lewis County.


Centralia Police Department has issued an active missing endangered person alert for Jennifer Glaze and her two grandchildren.

Glaze, 52, took Kaden Navarro, 12, and Shyla Alvarez, 6, on a day trip at 2:30 p.m. on Jan. 21, and hasn't been heard from since.

Glaze suffers from diabetes, fibromyalgia, bi-polar disorder and currently has a broken leg, according to the alert issued by Centralia Police. She does not have any of her medication with her.

It's not known what Glaze or Alvarez would be wearing, but police said Navarro was last seen wearing a hooded sweatshirt, a camouflage baseball hat, blue jeans and black shoes.

She would be driving a tan 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe with the Washington license plate DP32306.

Centralia Police will be working alongside Lewis County Sheriff's Office as they search the Packwood area, and plan on having officers out all night, said Det. John Panco with the Centralia Police Department. Right now they are concentrating the search on the east end of Lewis County because that's where it is believed they were headed.

Police do not believe the disappearance is suspicious at all and said there is snow in the area.
