How to avoid payday loans with Lynnwood
Lynnwood, Washington (AP) When Lynnwood police officer Justin Hahn first went to his sister’s house to report her missing in July, he expected a phone call from her father.
Instead, a caller on the other end of the line sounded a bit nervous.
It was a loan company.
He got the message right away, but the message was not the one he wanted to hear.
“I’m just trying to make sure you know that I love you,” the voice said.
The phone rang again.
“What’s going on?”
“The police are asking you to come to their office,” the man answered.
The voice sounded more nervous, and then he told Hahn his daughter had been missing for a couple of weeks.
“That’s crazy,” Hahn recalled thinking.
The woman, whose name has not been released, had no idea what was going on.
“It’s like she’s telling me she doesn’t want to talk to me,” Hina said.
She was living with her mother in an apartment in Lynnwood.
When the police went to the house to check on Hahn, they found his sister was nowhere to be found.
Lynnwood Police Chief Mike Eades was incredulous that someone would do something like that.
Hahn’s family, however, said he did not know the person who rang.
“We had no clue who that was,” said Hina’s sister, Erin.
She said her mother told her to call the Lynnwood Sheriff’s Department, which was in the area.
“They asked for her name, but I didn’t know her name,” she said.
Hina was relieved when the Lynnwoods police showed up.
He was told they found the missing woman and called Lynnwood Chief of Police Dan O’Brien.
“If he’s the same person, why would he call me?”
“Because he’s my father.”
Lynnwood’s Chief of Crime Prevention Lt.
Mike Hinshaw said the officer was aware of the name, as was the sheriff’s office.
He said the woman had been living with the woman’s mother, and that the woman was not at home.
“She had a phone number,” he said.
When Hinshaws police came to check up on the missing mother, they discovered that the missing person had been the mother’s boyfriend, a 30-year-old man from North Dakota who had been arrested for drug possession.
Lynnwoods Police Sgt. Eric Dye said the man was arrested a few days after the sister disappeared and had been placed in a county jail on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon.
Dye didn’t have details about the man’s identity, but said the mother had not been aware of him.
Hinshaws police didn’t take any action, he said, because the missing man was a stranger.
The Lynnwoods woman’s family was still in disbelief.
“He did nothing to us,” Hinshalaws sister, Lauren, said.
They still had not gotten a call from their sister.
The next day, Hinshee, the chief of crime prevention, went to Lynnwood to see how his department was handling the situation.
When he arrived, he noticed his sister, who had not moved from her mother’s apartment, was missing.
He and his wife were there, too.
The police officer who first found the woman said they had been called to the apartment by a man who was threatening to kill the woman if she didn’t get back to her mother.
Lynnbrook police Officer David Wirth said the officers told the man that they had found the sister’s phone number and asked him to call Lynnwood before the police showed.
When police showed the phone to Hinshallaws, he was shocked.
“There was nothing about this,” he told Wirth.
“None of us thought this would ever happen to us.”
The police chief said the family did not think the police were being unfair to Hineshallaws sister.
“My understanding is that the person that called us was just trying in good faith to help,” he added.
Hineshalaws family said they were told that they were being unfairly targeted by police and that they needed to call a local company to see if they could find a loan for the family.
“Our family was not given any help,” Lauren Hineshaws said.
Lauren Hinshlaws said her family called the company, but that they did not receive a response.
“You get on the phone with the police and you don’t hear anything,” she added.
The family was told that their sister was safe, but she did not return their calls or email messages.
“Every day I go to school and my mom’s in class, and I don’t know what’s going to happen next,” Lauren said.
Lynnville police Sgt. Gary Pate said he was unaware of any problems with the family, but he would not comment on
