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.
Body of missing hiker Katherine Huether found in Columbia River Gorge
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.”

Schantz may not have met with foul play at all, but may have fallen into the water after a night of drinking on Bourbon Street.
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 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.
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.

The family is asking that anyone with information contact that Detective Raymond Payette of the Vancouver Police Department at 604-717-2534.

He was last seen on Sunday Feb 14, in Vancouver, Canada. His sister Danielle Koenig said that “ He went to Vancouver on Feb 14th to visit friends who last saw him.”
Jenny Magenta, a Burlesque dancer said that Koeing is stayed with her in Vancouver, she also said that there’s some evidence he was in the Stanley Park area of Vancouver.
Let’s just hope he went off on his own and just did not bother to inform any one of his whereabouts.
UPDATE I: Body of Andrew Koenig Found in Vancouver Park
A tearful Walter Koenig appeared at a press conference Thursday evening to confirm that a body found earlier in the day in Vancouver’s Stanley Park was that of his son, missing “Growing Pains” actor Andrew Koenig.

Courtney Beard, a mother of two who was kidnapped while going to work at the Green Oak Township Olive Garden by her ex-boyfriend 23 year old Brandon Jay Smith of South Lyon from the parking lot at about 5:20 p.m. Friday after a “physical altercation” occurred as the woman was heading to work.
Kidnapped Courtney Beard found injured by alive
It was first believed Smith had a gun, but witnesses said he had a knife, police said.
Antrim County sheriff’s deputies found Beard at about 5:49 a.m. Saturday at a remote hunting cabin north of Mancelona that Green Oak Township Police Chief Robert Brookins said belongs to a Smith family member.
There is good news in the end from this story as Courtney Beard was found injured but alive in Antrim County early Saturday morning. Courtney Beard suffered from wounds and hypothermia.
Beard had been injured and was suffering from hypothermia from reportedly walking for several hours in the snow to reach the cabin. She was flown by helicopter to Otsego Memorial Hospital in Gaylord for emergency medical treatment.
The nature of her other injuries was not immediately known. The reason for the altercation also was not immediately known, but police said Smith was on electronic tether from a domestic violence case involving Beard. His criminal record also includes a misdemeanor conviction for assault and battery.
Brandon Jay Smith was also at the cabin with Courtney Beard and was taken into custody and arrested. It is reported by police that Brandon Jay Smith is on probation in connection with a recent assault against Courtney Beard. Beard’s family says he was ordered to stay away from Courtney Beard, but apparently removed his tether before the alleged kidnapping. The judicial system needs to throw this individual in jail before this stalking winds up in murder.

Myles Robinson, 23, was last seen outside the Blue Monkey bar in Wengen just after 2 a.m. on Tuesday when he escorted a friend to her hotel.
Last night his family, who were with him on holiday, spoke of their frantic search.
His sister Cara, 25, said, “We’ve heard absolutely nothing since then. It’s a total mystery.”
She said her family could think of no reason why he would suddenly disappear.
Despite a large scale search involving the army, police sniffer dogs and helicopters armed with heat-seeking equipment, there has been no trace of Myles Robinson has been found.
A comment from Myles parents regarding their sons disappearance. Generally folks, people do not plan to go missing. Could this be another alcohol related missing persons case like that of the disappearance of Devon Hollahan?
What should have been a happy Christmas break has turned into a nightmare for the Robinson family. His parents, Michael and Sarah, said their son had “everything to live for” and no reason to go missing.
His girlfriend was planning to fly out to Switzerland this Sunday to see in the New Year with him, and he is due to start a new job with a London financial services company on January 4.
