Snohomish County Sheriff's detectives are asking for the public's help in finding a woman suspected of intimidating a witness to a crime.

Angel N. Kirchgessner, 29, is believed to have threatened to assault a witness, if that person did not recant statements made to police regarding a 2013 incident, involving Kirchgessner and her boyfriend, Joshua Hoy, who is currently in custody in SeaTac.

Kirchgessner stands 5 feet, 1 inch tall, and has brown hair and hazel eyes. Police believe she is homeless, but she may be in Marysville or Granite Falls.

Anyone with information about Kirchgessner's whereabouts should call the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office anonymous tip line at 425-388-3845.
