Killdeer woman missing since Saturday: Husband is 'keeping hopes high and thinking positive'

KILLDEER -- A 31-year-old Killdeer woman has been missing since Saturday afternoon, leading her husband and family members on a desperate search.

Laine Craine Officer was last seen at her Killdeer home at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, according to the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office.

She is a brunette, described as 5 feet, 1 inches tall and weighs between 100 and 115 pounds.

Officer is possibly driving a dark blue 1996 Buick Park Avenue. If she is driving the vehicle, the license plate number is KDK 592, according to the sheriff’s office.

Officer’s husband, Jeremy, said the car can also be distinguished by its rims. It has regular aluminum rims on all tires except on the front driver’s side, which is black.

“Kupper Chevrolet” is written in white letters across the back also, Jeremy Officer said in a phone interview.

Family members have not been able to reach Laine Officer because she left her cell phone at home. Her husband said the pair had an argument before she left the house.

“Usually when we argue, she takes off and cools off. This time she didn’t come back,” Jeremy Officer said.

Jeremy Officer wrote on his Facebook page that he drove 500 miles across the state on Tuesday while looking for his wife, with no success.

He called her the love of his life and best friend. Friends wrote on Jeremy Officer’s Facebook status that they would fully devote their efforts to searching for her.

“We are still keeping hopes high and thinking positive through the tears,” he posted on Facebook.

Jeremy Officer runs Officer Bucking Stock with his wife, he said. The couple has also raised two sons together.

“I’m just trying to keep my boys positive, but it’s hard to keep it away from an 8-year-old and 10-year-old,” Officer said.

Laine Officer has not withdrawn or deposited any money from her bank account since last Thursday, Jeremy Officer said. This has led her husband to suspect she is staying with someone nearby, saying he has exhausted all options during his search.

“We just want her home, you know? It’s been a miserable five days, that’s for damn sure,” Jeremy Officer said.

Those who have seen Laine Officer or know her whereabouts are asked to contact the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office at 701-260-5730 or Bureau of Criminal Investigations at 1-800-472-2185.
