Cannon Beach Police seek information on possible abduction

Ariana Miller and Shane Lynn

CANNON BEACH — The Cannon Beach Police Department is trying to find a woman who may be in danger and a male suspect.

A resident witnessed Shane A. Lynn assaulting and possibly kidnapping Ariana K. Miller in Cannon Beach on Sept. 27, Police Chief Jason Schermerhorn said.

The witness saw the suspect punching Miller in the head. When Lynn noticed the witness, Lynn grabbed Miller and drove away, according to police.

After the incident, Seaside Police officers located the suspect vehicle at Safeway. When the officers approached the vehicle to talk, Lynn escaped by driving over the grass median, Schermerhorn said.

The suspect vehicle, which has now been listed as stolen, has the Oregon license plate 795-DPS. The front license plate is missing.

Anyone who has seen Lynn or Miller or knows where they are should contact Cannon Beach Lt. Chris Wilbur at 503-436-8072.
