Yakima County Sheriffs in Search of Missing Hunter



The Yakima County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a missing subject’s hunting partner stating that his friend had left camp at 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning and has not seen him since. The subject is a 49-year-old Cashmere resident who was riding on horseback. He was planning on riding out to his vehicle parked at the White Pass campground to get additional supplies.  When he failed to return, the partner and his son started searching. Search & Rescue was notified Sunday evening, and teams were deployed into the area.  The subject’s vehicle was located. It appeared he had made it out, but had failed to return to the camp.  The search area is just north of Highway 12 at White Pass.

Three sets of ground teams began searching the trail systems from Dog Lake, North and West to Dumbbell Lake, encompassing the Pacific Crest Trail North of Highway 12.

The State Emergency Operation Center was contacted, and a request for assistance from Lewis County was made.  The search area is on the border of Yakima and Lewis Counties.  The Lewis County team will be joining in the search this morning.
