The Klamath County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help to locate a woman who went missing Tuesday. Deputies say her estranged boyfriend had attempted to abduct her over the weekend.
Molly May Swedenskey, 20, is white, 5 feet 4 inches tall and 120 pounds.
KCSO says the boyfriend, Eric Patrick Koon, broke into Swedenskey’s home in Chiloquin and tried to abduct her forcefully. He allegedly bound her wrists with zip ties and taped her mouth. Koon then allegedly ran off after Swedenskey was able to escape and get help.
Swedenskey was last seen by her family Tuesday at around 1:00 p.m.
Two children, both under the age of two, were left behind at her home. Her vehicle and cell phone are both accounted for.
Swedenskey’s family says this behavior is unusual for her, KCSO says.
Koon is 19 and has a felony warrant for a previous assault, KCSO says. He now is under probable cause for kidnapping and burglary, according to the sheriff’s office.
His mental state is unknown, KCSO says.
Koon is believed to be living in his white 1999 Ford F250 with Montana License Plate 157817F. KCSO says he may have been staying close to Swedenskey without her knowledge.
KCSO says Koon has turned off his cell phone and has cut off communication with his family.
Koon is also believed to have a handgun based on statements from his family, but KCSO said what type of handgun is unknown.
