26-year-old Melody Mickel was last seen Thursday morning at Rite-Aid where she works. Mickel arrived for work around 5:30 a.m. yesterday, but quickly left with her exboyfriend, 28-year-old Alberto Martinez, who lives in Umatilla County just outside the Hermiston city limits.
About 4 1/2 hours after Mickel left work, a coworker called Hermiston Police who then contacted the Umatilla County Sheriff's Office.
