Police: Missing woman ‘alive and well’

Spokane police have confirmed a missing 21-year-old woman left the area two days ago on a bus. They believe she is “alive and well,” according to a press release.

Cherice Marshall left the Cheney area about 11 p.m. Saturday to return to her parents’ home in Chattaroy where she lived, but she never arrived.

After not showing up for several days, Spokane police had been seeking the public’s help finding her, but learned that she had been seen boarding a bus, possibly to Reno, said Spokane police Officer Jennifer DeRuwe.

Her vehicle was found at a shopping center parking lot on the North Side early today.

Detectives believe she is not in any danger, though they are still trying to determine why she left the Spokane area, DeRuwe said.
