UPDATE 12/15: A citizen searching for Dayna Foster found her dead in her car on a spur road off Shale City Road Friday morning. The Jackson County Medical Examiner's Office is investigating the cause and manner of death; investigators report no sign of foul play. Dayna's family has been notified of her death.

ASHLAND, Ore. -- The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office entered day two in the search to find missing Ashland woman, 47-year-old Dayna Foster. She was last seen wearing a camouflage jacket, a black Puma t-shirt, blue jeans, and black/white Nike shoes. Her hair was pulled back into a ponytail and she was wearing the same necklace in the photo.

"She was last known to be at a veterinary hospital in Talent and was last seen on film there dropping the cat off on Tuesday morning. We have no idea of her whereabouts between then and now," said Sgt. Shawn Richards of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is searching throughout rural Ashland and is using the Ashland Municipal Airport as a command post.

"She lives to the east of this location so we're working up in the mountains. The family members live out here, her job’s up here. So in case she took a back road and got stuck or something that's why we’re concentrating on our efforts are here right now,” said Sgt. Richards.

Richards said there is reason to believe she could be anywhere between Ashland and Klamath County.

“She has a cabin in Klamath County in the Beatty area that she could've run into some trouble between here and there. So Klamath County is helping as well,” said Sgt. Richards.

Deputies believe Foster is still alive but Richards said Search and Rescue is working against the cold weather and time.

"Obviously it's cold right now so if she's stuck in the snow hopefully she stays with her vehicle where she has some shelter. It’s been two nights, two days and we just hope we can find her as quickly as possible," Sgt. Richards added.

Foster was driving a green 1998 Toyota Tacoma 4X4 pickup truck with the Oregon plate 469HZF

If you think you may have seen Dayna Foster or her truck since she's been missing, the Sheriff's Office asks that you call dispatch immediately at (541) 776-7206.
