Updated: Bend Police Asking Eastside Neighbors for Help in Missing Woman Case 

Ex-boyfriend still in custody

UPDATE: Bend Police are asking people who live east of Hamby and Ward Roads to check their property—specifically open fields, abandoned buildings, ponds and other water sources—for anything out of the ordinary, such as tire tracks or foot prints. 

Sara Diana Gomez, a 24-year-old Bend woman, has been missing since Feb. 19, according to the Bend Police Department.


On Tuesday, Feb. 20 a concerned friend called the Redmond Police to report Gomez hadn't returned home for a few days. Redmond Police forwarded the information to Bend Police, who, on Feb. 21 identified Bryan Penner, a former boyfriend of Gomez, as a person of interest. According to Bend Police, detectives executed a search warrant at Penner's home and found evidence they believe to be linked to the disappearance of Gomez. Penner was taken into custody and is now in the Deschutes County Jail on the alleged charges of Kidnap II, Theft II and Restraining Order Violation. Gomez had an active restraining order on Penner.

Lt. Clint Burleigh told the Source Weekly that detectives and officers have been following up on information coming in daily.
