    “Anonymous” has the right idea, the port of Tacoma and\or other nearby ports for overseas shipping are strong possibilities.

    I hope someone can keep us posted with a follow up on how they were found and the rest of the story ie how they were taken. It’s not too often that stories like this have a nice ending.
