PORT ANGELES — The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information about Michelle Russell.

Russell was reported missing in July by her daughter, who was accustomed to hearing from her mother every couple of months, the sheriff’s office said on its Facebook page.

Her daughter told deputies she has not heard from her mother in about a year and she has become worried about her.

Russell is 47 years old, stands 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds, deputies said.

Investigation has discovered the last official contact with the woman was in November in Port Angeles. She was unhoused then and had been for several years before that time, according to the sheriff’s office.

Anyone with information about Russell is asked to contact the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office at 360-417-2262 or submit an anonymous tip at:
