​Sketch of barn or machine shop

The Bellingham Police Department is requesting help in identifying the location of a possible machine shop/barn in Whatcom County. The sketch is a rough idea of what it looks like. It is enclosed on 3 sides with a gravel floor and the front appears to be wood with metal poles. There were no visible structures in front of it. We believe the barn/shop is most likely in the Sumas, Everson, NE Lynden area. This is the site of a possible crime scene involving two young adult females kidnapped from Bellingham on May 28th. Edmund R. Olivas is in custody at this time related to this investigation. If you recognize this structure you can contact Detective Wagner at (360)778-8767, report it anonymously at (360) 778-8611, or report it to the City's website tip line at www.cob.org/tips
