Girl, 4, and grandparents vanish during trip to forest to get Christmas tree

A four year-old girl and her grandparents vanished after going to a forest near their home to chop down a Christmas tree.

Zelda Sudhoff-Clements, her grandma Sharon Poitra, 61, and grandfather Gregory Poitra, 63, were last seen on Monday after driving into the Willamette National Forest near Portland in Oregon to get a tree.

The little girl’s mother went to collect her from her grandparents’ home the next day, and raised the alarm on realizing they weren’t there, and hadn’t come home from their trip.

Lane County Sheriff’s Office deputies are trying to track down the missing family using cellphone data, and have given no indication as to what they think may have happened to them.

Willamette National Forest spans 1.6million acres, with the Poitras giving no indication as to which part of the expansive beauty spot they were headed to.

The Poitras were driving a 1997 white Toyota Matrix with Oregon license plates. Investigators say Zelda has blonde hair, blue eyes, stands three feet tall and weighs 30 pounds.

She was wearing a gray sweater, gray pants and boots with owls on them at the time of her disappearance, KOIN reported.

Sharon is described as being 5’10, 165lbs, with brown hair and green eyes.

She was last seen wearing a tan coat and tan boots. Gregory is described as being 6’3, 190lbs with brown hair. He was wearing a gray jacket and jeans at the time of his disappearance.
