Man dies in woods after falling down embankment
SEATTLE (AP) — A 64-year-old man was found dead in the woods near Beaver Lake in Snohomish County.
The Seattle Times reports officials received a report around 8 a.m. Wednesday of an abandoned vehicle near milepost 43 along Mountain Loop Highway, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team.
The sheriff’s office says deputies searched the residence where the car is registered but didn’t find the owner.
The agency sent a K-9 unit to search the area surrounding the abandoned car, and found the man half a mile from his vehicle in the woods.
Officers believe the man became disoriented and fell off a steep embankment.
The county medical examiner is working to determine how the man died.
