Search for Mushroom Picker in Skamania County

PCESAR was called to assist Skamania County with a search for a missing 60-year-old mushroom picker. She went missing Dec 1 and after exhausting their local resources, we were called to help search on Dec 6. PCESAR grid searched an area north of where she was last seen, looking for any clues of her whereabouts. Also searching were teams from many other Washington and Oregon counties. Our area yielded no clues, however a PNWSAR team located a crashed plane missing since the 1970s. The terrain was steep with heavy underbrush and the rain was consistent--a reminder of why we train and test our gear in the winter rain.
