BROWNSVILLE, Ore. - The Benton County Undersheriff, Greg Ridler, confirmed on Friday that the search for the missing Brownsville resident, Suzanne Durheim, has been suspended for the weekend.

The search, which started on Wednesday, is set to resume on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

The Undersheriff said that search has transitioned from a Search and Rescue mission to a Recovery effort, due to the fact that it is very unlikely that Durheim has survived this long in the Willamette River.

The Benton County Sheriff's Office plans to resume looking for Durheim with the help of a cadaver dog, along with Search and Rescue and Marine Deputies on the water.
