PMR received a request at 6:00 AM from the Skamania County Sheriff for assistance in the search for 24 year old female identified as Katherine Huether. The subject had been missing since 3/4 but a formal missing persons report was not filed until 3/6. Formal search efforts began on 3/7.
Search efforts were extensive, employing dog teams, equestrian teams, ATVs, ground searchers and Coast Guard Helicopters. The only clue discovered was found by a hiker on March 8th: A credit card receipt with the subjects name was found at the 1200′ level on a road which traverses Greenleaf Creek east of Table Mountain. The Sheriff indefinitely suspended the search on March 10th.
On March 13th, the body of Katherine Huether was found at the base of the east face of Table Mountain. Injuries were consistent with a long fall.
