DARRINGTON, Wash. – The Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue (SAR) team located a 64 year-old Marysville man deceased in a wooded area off Mountain Loop Highway near Beaver Lake. Just after 8 a.m. SAR received a report of an abandoned vehicle near milepost 43. Deputies checked the residence of the vehicle’s registered owner and he was not home. A SAR K9 team and SAR Man Trackers responded to the location of the abandoned vehicle and began a ground search of the area.

Just before 9 a.m. SAR located the 64 year-old male approximately half a mile from his vehicle in a wooded area. It is believed the adult male became disoriented, walked off trail and fell down a steep embankment. 

Identification of the decedent, as well as cause and manner will come from the Snohomish County Medical Examiner.
