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.

 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.”

A team traveling about two hours behind Myers did not see any signs of the man. He had skis with him, but little survival gear.

Aerial searches are underway for the missing Colorado chiropractor.  

He did not return to the camp at 14,200 feet, where his climbing partners were waiting. They said Myers took no sleeping bag, bivouac sack, stove to melt snow or thermal pad with him when he attempted to summit.

At the time, weather high on the mountain was deteriorating with winds gusting 40 to 50 mph.

Searchers did not know what route he planned to take down from the summit. Park rangers were using spotting scopes to look for him along the various descent routes.

Crews are searching for a boater who went missing on the Missouri River.

Rescue Crews Will Resume Search For Yankton Man Sunday

“It’s a little cooler than we’d like it if we’re going to be in the water,” Johnson said. “Of course, we’re going to be along the edges of the water. You’re going to get wet. You’re going to get a little cool.”

Johnson says the conditions aren’t ideal, but they’re not anything teams can’t handle.

“There are different types of missions – some water, some land,” Johnson said.  “We’ve had a variety of different situations we’ve been in.”

Around 7:00 AM Saturday morning, crews were out in 37-degree weather, about ten degrees below average. And wind speeds weren’t kind either, with some winds gusting up to 30 miles per hour in some spots. But crews say they’re prepared for the changing conditions.

Elderly Couple Missing Aboard Cruise Ship Carnival Paradise … Presumed to have Gone Overboard

An elderly couple has gone missing aboard the Carnival Paradise that set sail from Long Beach, CA. A 90 year old man and his 79 year old wife were last seen Tuesday, January 13, 2009 aboard the Carnival Paradise. They are presumed to have gone overboard. The couple’s names and hometowns have not been released. Their cabin door was double locked from the inside with a “do not disturb” sign hanging on the door handle. It is also being reported that the door to the balcony from their room was unlocked.

A statement released overnight by Carnival says the 90-year-old man and his 79-year-old wife were aboard the Carnival Paradise when it set sail from Long Beach, Calif., on Monday but could not be found when the ship returned Friday.

“Their cabin door was double locked from the inside with a do not disturb sign on the handle and the door leading from the cabin to the balcony was unlocked,” the statement says. “The couple’s personal belongings remained inside the cabin.”

Carnival says all proper authorities have been notified, including the U.S. Coast Guard and FBI, and the cruise line is providing full assistance.

The Coast Guard has suspended the search for the elderly couple who are believed to have fallen overboard.

The Coast Guard suspended its search Saturday for an elderly couple believed to have fallen off a cruise ship between Long Beach and northern Mexico.

The aerial search for the 90-year-old man and his 79-year-old wife was halted after officials determined that their chances of surviving in the water were slim, said Chief Warrant Officer Scott Epperson.

“Factoring in their age and weights, their survivability in 59 degrees water was about 4 to 6 hours,” he said. “The last time they were seen was 84 hours ago.”

Alisha left her Hatfield home Friday night after an arguement with her husband, Doug Sidie. Now officials are beginning to piece together a timeline of Alisha’s whereabouts that night, including the last people she had spoke with.

Sheriff Waldera says, “We are looking into the whereabouts and who had last contact, doesn’t matter if it was the husband or even friends she was with, but yes, we have investigators looking at all that information including the husband, what was going on and the details of the event that was told to us.”

Family, friends and law enforcement officers planned to regroup Tuesday to resume the search. About 150 people combed the Hatfield area on Monday. Searchers called in a tracking dog, helicopter and dive team as they looked for the mother of two.

“There’s so many dozens of ways that this could have happened,” Sidie’s friend Molly Hoffman told FOX News on Tuesday. “We all hope that she’s being a brat and she’s out there somewhere, but we also have thought about the worst and the more we look, it’s hard to say what actually happened when we have no news at all.”

Sidie’s ex-husband, Doug, says his wife left home about 9 p.m. Friday and never returned.

UPDATE II: Volunteers come up empty-handed on second day of search

Jordann Ojanpa says, “This has been the biggest challenge in the search efforts. Hatfield is completly covered in wooded areas. In over three hours, 160 volunteers could only cover 3 1/2 miles of woods.”

Searches now face the daunting task of sifting through brush and miles of wooded ares, hoping for any signs of Alisha.

Volunteer Amy Appel says, “We’re looking for items of clothing, really anything that looks remotely new that might be in relation, might give us some help.”

Alisha left her Hatfield home Friday night after an argument with her husband, Doug Sidie. Now officials are beginning to piece together a timeline of Alisha’s whereabouts that night, including the last people she had spoke with.

30 Year Old Jennifer Cornell Missing Since 10/30/08 in Hilman, TN (Ex-Boyfriend Jason Hancock Arrested)

30 year old Jennifer Cornell, a wife and mother of three, has been missing since Thursday, October 30, 2008 in Hilman, TN in Overton county.

Jennifer Cornell Description:Jennifer Cornell

  • Age 30
  • white female
  • five feet and four inches tall
  • about 135 pounds
  • brown hair.

Cornell’s car was found abandoned Thursday morning and still running on the street approximately 100 yards from her home. Searchers and volunteers are presently looking for Jennifer Cornell Standing Stone State Park.

The woman’s abandoned car was found Thursday morning still running on a street 100 yards from her home. Her purse was still inside her vehicle when police arrived.

Police said there were no obvious signs of foul play but are looking for a body at the park, which covers nearly 11,000 acres.

“Jennifer’s a loving mother and a loving wife,” said family spokesman Michael South. “We just want to return her as quickly as possible.”

A couple of months ago, Cornell proved that Hancock is the father of her 17-year-old daughter, and she began asking him for child support.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Overton County Sheriff’s Department at (931) 823-5635.

UPDATE I: Ex-Boyfriend Jason Hancock was arrested Friday in Clay County

Jason Hancock was arrested Friday in Clay County. He was charged with aggravated kidnapping.  He is being held without bond pending hearing next week.

Authorities believe Hancock dated Cornell about 16 years ago.

Man charged with kidnapping missing woman

34 year old Jason Hancock, the ex-boyfriend of missing Jennifer Cornell has been arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping. At least for now. The warrant against Jason Hancock alleges he committed the crime of aggravated kidnapping by “falsely imprisoning” Jennifer Cornell with the intent “to inflict serious bodily injuries while in the possession of a deadly weapon.” At issue appears to be back child support as investigators say that Cornell had named Hancock as the father of her 17-year-old daughter and may have been seeking back pay for child support.

A Clay County man was arrested Friday night and charged with kidnapping a Hilham woman who has been missing since Thursday.

Jason Hancock, 34, of the Willow Grove area of Clay County, is charged with aggravated kidnapping of Jennifer Hughes Cornell, 30, of Vaughn Lane, Hilham.

He was arrested at his home about 7:30 p.m. Friday by Clay County Sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Randall Slayton, one of several law officers working the case.

Hancock, who is being held without bail pending a court hearing, had been questioned in the disappearance of Cornell on Thursday, but was not charged with any crime at that time.

UPDATE I: Body found in missing woman case

Overton County Sheriff W.B. Melton told the Herald-Citizen that searchers found the body on Sunday about 10 a.m. and said it was removed from the sinkhole around 2 a.m. today, Monday, and sent to Nashville for an autopsy.

He said it was the body of a woman and that the exact cause of death is still not known, though it did not appear that she had been shot. He said official identification of the body will not be confirmed until the autopsy is conducted.

UPDATE II: Autopsy Confirms Body Is Missing Mom Jennifer Cornell

Autopsy results released Tuesday confirmed the identity of a body found in a sinkhole as that of Jennifer Cornell. They also show that she died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Cornell had been missing since Oct. 30, when her car was found still running in the middle of a road 100 yards from her home in Overton County, with her purse inside.

Kelly Morris missing

On the morning of September 4, 2008, firefighters with the Stem and Providence fire departments responded to a house fire at 3220 Tump Wilkins Road. The house and much of its contents were destroyed; however, firefighters were able to determine that the residents, 34-year-old William Scott Morris and his wife, 28-year-old Kelly Currin Morris, were not home when the fire broke out.

William Morris was allegedly at his towing business in Creedmoor and the couple’s two young children, ages 8 and 5, were in school at the time of the incident. It was initially believed that Kelly was in Raleigh, where she worked for Nationwide Insurance; however, investigators soon learned that she never showed up for work that morning.

The next day, authorities found Kelly Morris’ car and personal belongings in an undeveloped subdivision about a mile from the home, shortly after firefighters responded to a fire at the residence. Authorities have not named any suspects, but have stated that Scott Morris is a person of interest in Kelly Morris’ disappearance.

The family of Kelly Morris is offering a $30,000 reward for information that leads to finding her and NC Gov. Mike Easley has added $5,000.

Family members say they will not stop searching and urge anyone with any information to contact Granville County sheriff’s investigators at 919-693-3213 or a volunteer search line at 919-812-2310.

To further discuss the case, get updates and provide opinions go to Scared Missing Persons Forum: Kelly Currin Morris.

UPDATE I: Dive teams continue search for missing Granville mom

UPDATE II: Texas mounted search team helps search for Morris

UPDATE III: Texas search team looks for missing Stem woman

A high-profile team continued to search on Saturday for a missing Granville County woman.

Texas EquuSearch has sent crews to North Carolina to help look for Kelly Morris. They also plan to conduct a search for a woman missing from Gastonia, its members said on their Web site.

On Saturday crews searched a 15-mile radius. They used side-sonar technology in ponds and Falls Lake. An airplane with a remote control camera was also used to scan wooded areas. The group also looked down wells with special cameras.

“I think we have plenty of tools. We have plenty of resources (and) a lot of determination on the part of the searchers, now we just need a little bit of luck to go along with it,” Texas EquuSearch founder Tim Miller said.
