The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help to solve a 2015 missing person investigation.

In March of 2015 Tiffany Bettis (aka Melinda Smith) went missing.  At the time she maintained a home in Fairview, Oregon and also lived in Roseburg, Oregon.  She was reportedly last seen at the Quality Inn in Gresham around March 2nd, 2015.

She left behind three children and a large family that continues to miss her.  Multiple people have reported to investigators that they believe Tiffany Bettis never would have left behind her children willingly.  The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office is seeking any information about Tiffany Bettis and her disappearance.  Foul play has not been ruled out.
