BEND, OR — Sara Gomez, a 24-year-old Bend woman who went missing in Mid-February, has still not been found.
Deschutes County DA John Hummel says even though there’s no new evidence or leads in Sara’s disappearance, that doesn’t mean he’s lost hope. “Law enforcement continues to look for Sara Gomez. That won’t stop until we find her.” He also says there’s nothing to indicate the main suspect in Sara’s disappearance should be anyone other than her ex-boyfriend, Brian Penner. “We don’t consider it a search for Sara’s killer, but it is a search for her body. The family deserves to have her home, and we won’t stop until they do.”
