SPOKANE VALLEY -- Police deputies are attempting to locate 79-year-old Maure L. Labonte and 77-year-old Ruth A. Labonte to check their welfare. They are possibly traveling in a white 2016 Subaru Outback with Washington license plates BHE7400.
According to a July 27 news release, their daughter stated Maure and Ruth went to Colfax to visit family. When she tried to call her parents Sunday night, the phone was answered by the manager of a restaurant in Colfax. The manager stated the phone had been left at the restaurant.
Monday she drove to Colfax, picked up the phone, and went to her parents’ home in Spokane Valley, but their car was gone, and neither were home.
She checked their bank account and learned a purchase was made at a convenience store at approximately 7:45 a.m. this morning. She assumed they stopped for gas on their way back to Colfax to locate the cell phone.
She checked with her family in the area, and no one knew of Maure or Roth Labonte’s location.
She explained her parents have several health concerns and can become confused, disoriented, and lost easily. She is very concerned about their welfare and reported them as missing.
They are believed to be traveling in a white 2016 Subaru Outback with Washington license plates BHE7400.
