Body of 24 Year Old Missing Katherine Huether Has been Found in the Columbia River Gorge in Portland, OR

24 year old Katherine Huether has been missing since March 4, 2010 when she went hiking in Washington’s Skamania County near the Bonneville Dam. Sadly, her body was found Saturday, March 13 by hikers in the Columbia River Gorge wedged behind rocks at the base of an 800 foot cliff.

He says deputies confirmed the body was that of Huether but because of darkness and hazardous conditions authorities postponed recovering it until Sunday morning.

Cox didn’t disclose any information how she died in a news release, but he told the Portland Oregonian that Huether appears to have fallen from a cliff that is part of a steep rock face marking the site of the historic Bonneville Slide.

The only information that authorities had to go on was her car found at a trailhead and a credit card receipt with her name found about four miles north of Bonneville Dam.

A Stevenson father and son who set out today on a four-wheeler and by foot discovered the body of Katherine Huether, 24, among rocks at the base of an 800-foot high-cliff. Skamania County Sheriff’s deputies responding to the scene confirmed the body was Huether’s.

James Martin, 43, told The Oregonian tonight that he and his son went to search the area below the southeast-facing slope of Table Mountain because he thought it hadn’t been thoroughly searched by ground rescuers.

“I thought, if she’s going to be anywhere, she’s going to be below that cliff face,” Martin said.

Martin said he first spotted Huether’s blue North Face jacket, then his son noticed her body nearby about 15 feet down a slope in rocky, steep terrain.

“Her clothing blended right in. I was standing 15 feet from her and didn’t recognize her,” Martin said. “From the air, there was no way they could have seen her.”

Michael Schantz said that one video showed his father “stumbling” and “grasping for a wall” as he made his way to the dock.

“[In the video] he walks down near the water and there is a gate that he opens,” the son said. “I’m sure he just wanted to go reflect or look at the boat.”

21 Year Old Danielle T. Brown Missing Since February 5, 2010 in Tallahassee, FL

21 year old Danielle T. Brown has been missing since Friday, February 5, 2010, in Tallahassee, FL when she was last seen at 8:30pm leaving her residence in the 7200 block of Springhill Road. Danielle Brown was driving a 1994 Silver Buick with Florida Tag 694YBX and wearing South Pole brand jeans and a yellow shirt.

Danielle T. Brown description:

  • DOB: 08/03/1988
  • Race: White
  • Sex: Female
  • Height: 5’2″
  • Weight: 130lbs
  • Eyes: Brown
  • Hair: Red/Auburn

On February 8, 2010 the vehicle of missing Danielle T. Brown was located at approximately 10:00 am by the Pavo, Georgia Police Department. They responded to the report of an abandoned vehicle found at the Pavo City Refuse Site.

On February 8th, three days after Brown’s disappearance, her car was found at the Pavo, Georgia dump with the license plate removed.

Thirty-five year-old Elijah James, who authorities called her on again, off again boyfriend, is charged with stealing and burning Brown’s car.

Authorities and community members have searched Miccosukee, Florida; and more than 100 officers sifted through garbage in landfills in Thomas County.

“Hopefully they’ll find her because I know she’s got a family.” Said, Chastaine.

Pieces of Brown’s driver’s license and her cell phone were found in Beachton, Georgia on February 15th.

But, deputies still need more pieces of the entire puzzle to resolve her disappearance.

The fact thatBrown’s ex-boyfriend Elijah James has been arrested on arson and car theft charges is hardly a positive sign to this missing persons case. One, driving a vehicle of a missing person where the individual did not have permission to drive.Two, abandoning the vehicle in a dump so to hide the vehicle and three, burning the vehicle in an attempt to hide evidence. All terrible signs in finding Danielle T. Brown alive.

Brown’s ex-boyfriend, Elijah James, was arrested Tuesday on a first-degree arson charge after Brown’s car was found in the dump. The car had been damaged by fire. James, who is being held in the Leon County Jail, faced an additional charge of grand theft of a motor vehicle Thursday after witnesses said they saw him driving around Pavo alone in the car Saturday. Brown’s father is the owner of the car. He said James didn’t have permission to drive it.

Thursday, there were singed stumps and other pieces of wood in the dump. The woods surrounding the acreage were also searched. Twelve-to-15-foot bamboo-looking stalks filled the muddy city dump which is next door to a park on West McDonald Street in Thomas County. On the other side of the dump is a small pond where officers searched its murky depths with underwater gear.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 850-922-3300.

18 Year Old Jalesa Reynolds Missing Since February 22, 2010 in Scotland Neck, NC

18 year old Jalesa Reynolds has been missing since February 22, 2010 when she was last seen at the Scotland Neck Memorial Library around 11 am. Police have since searched the wooded area around the library to no avail.

Jalesa Reynolds description:

  • African-America
  • 5 foot 2 inches tall
  • 220 pounds
  • medium complexion
  • short black hair
  • She was wearing tan pants, a pink shirt and a blue-jean jacket with a flower design on the back.

According to reports, the police have traced Reynolds’ Internet activity to a computer at a home on the 200 block of Cemetery Road.

Investigators said they have since traced Reynolds’ Internet activity to a computer at a home on the 200 block of Cemetery Road. They think she went to the home after going to the library.

Investigators said the man who owns the residence where Reynolds accessed the computer is a person of interest in her disappearance.

Police Trace Facebook To Find Missing Woman

Police say she logged off her account around lunchtime last Monday at the public library.

Then, around 1:40 in the afternoon she checked back in using a computer located in this neighborhood.

There’s been no sign of her since.

“That’s the key piece of the puzzle,“ Williams said.

Her family says it was out of character for her not to come home.

“Stayed to herself, very shy, you know, ordinary teenager, just loved computers,“ said Reynold’s cousin Frederick Lassiter.

Jalesa Reynolds didn’t have a computer at home.

So, she came to this library almost every day to use the internet and Facebook.

Police continue to search for missing Jalesa Reynolds, search the residence where she last logged on to Facebook and seized the computer.

Chief Joe Williams says records indicate she logged onto a social networking Web site around 11 a.m. At 1:39 p.m., she logged onto a computer at a residence on Cemetary Road, which is about 1.5 miles northwest of town. Police believe she left the home between 2 and 3 p.m.

Williams says officers questioned the owner of the residence and seized his computer. The machine is being examined by the SBI in Raleigh.

ABC11 Eyewitness News has learned the house where police believe Reynolds last logged onto a computer is also the home of a registered sex offender.

Police won’t say what role – if any – it may play in Reynolds’s disappearance.

The fact that a convicted sex offender lives at the residence that Jalesa Reynolds is on record to have been in can’t be a good sign. Dwayne Davis is being considered a person of interest.

WITN News has learned that a convicted sex offender lives at a home where deputies say a missing teenager was last seen more than a week ago.

The North Carolina Sex Offender Registry says Dwayne Davis lives at 285 Cemetery Road in Scotland Neck. That’s where police say Jalesa Reynolds was last heard from a week ago Monday. Davis served six years of a 15 year sentence from Martin County for second degree rape and was released from prison in 2000.

A law enforcement source tells WITN that Davis is a person of interest in the case.

Anyone with information about Reynolds’ whereabouts is asked to contact Scotland Neck police at 252-826-4111.

BIZARRE: Pentagon Gunman John Patrick Bedell Had Been Reported Missing January 4, 2010

John Patrick Bedell, the crazed gunman who was shot and killed while attempting to fire upon officers the other day at the Pentagon in Washington, DC had previously been declared missing on January 4, 2010.

John Patrick Bedell had been reported missing by his parents who were concerned of their son’s mental state.Knowing what we know now, I guess the parents were correct in having concern over the mental sanity of their son.

The parents of John Patrick Bedell, who pulled a gun on the guards, reported him missing Jan. 4 in Hollister, Calif., the Los Angeles times reported.

They filed the report after receiving a call from a Texas state trooper who had stopped Bedell for speeding west of Amarillo.

The trooper apparently tried to determine if there was sufficient cause for a mental-health hold on him, the Times said.

“There’s an inference in [the report] that he was concerned about his mental health,” San Benito County Sheriff Curtis Hill said.

Family Filed a Missing Person Report for Pentagon Shooter

According to the report, Oscar Bedell had not seen his son since December 30th after John Patrick Bedel got in a fight with his brother. Oscar Bedell said that he was concerned for his son’s safety.

In the report is states that the last contact they had with Bedell when he went missing was on January 3rd. John’s mother, Karen Bedell received a phone call from a Texas Highway Patrol Officer saying that he had pulled her son over for speeding. The officer said that Bedell’s vehicle was in a state of disarray. According to the report the officer asked Bedell’s mother if she believed that Bedell was a danger to himself or others. The reports says that Karen Bedell said that her son was okay.

The report states that Bedel had a medical Marijuana card and had been detained for a mental evaluation.

John Patrick Bedell returned home the week of January 18th. According to his father upon returning home, Bedell told them not to ask any questions about where he was or what he was doing. In retrospect I guess it is too bad the parents did not ask Bedell what he was up to and what he was thinking.
