Dundee, Ore. --- (KGW)  Photos captured from a gas station surveillance camera in Newberg, Oregon show the last moment family members know about, in the mysterious disappearance of a Dundee mom and wife.

Jennifer Huston, 38, used her credit card to purchase gas at the Newberg Circle K gas station around 6:10 p.m. Thursday. She has not contacted her family since then, and that was the last time her credit card was used, authorities said.

Police who studied the surveillance video said they were confident Jennifer was the only person in the vehicle when it pulled into the bank and the gas station.

"Jennifer wouldn't willingly drive off," her dad, Bill Turner, said Monday morning.

Her husband, Kallen Huston, said their two boys, ages 2 and 6, "really, really need her." He said the family is trying to shelter the boys from news of their mother's disappearance.
