Spokane Police searching for woman who was last seen over a year ago

Courtney Holden is missing

SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane Police are searching for a woman who they say may have been missing for over a year. 

When police responded to a welfare check on October 8, friends and neighbors told them they hadn’t seen 27-year-old Courtney Holden in over a year. 

The Major Crimes Unit picked up the investigation, where detectives learned Holden was living with her adoptive family in northeast Spokane before she disappeared. 

According to a release, Holden was last seen sometime in April 2018.  

Detectives interviewed Holden’s adoptive mother and brother, but said they were not cooperative. 

Further investigation revealed criminal activity in Holden’s adoptive family, including custodial interference and identity theft. 

Police said Holden’s adoptive mother and brother were arrested in December 2019 in Texas for local charges related to her disappearance. Police say they have no idea where Holden is. 

Holden is described as a white woman with black hair and brown eyes. She is around 5’06” tall and 160 pounds. 

Spokane’s Major Crimes Unit is asking anyone with information to call Detective Randy Lesser at 625-4016.
