Search Crews Locate Truck Reported Going into Snoqualmie River, Investigation Ended

Search and Rescue activity continued on the Snoqualmie River in Fall City, Monday, April 28, 2014, after a witness reported seeing a truck go into the river Sunday night.

King County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant, Cindi West, stated Monday afternoon that divers and rescue personnel searched the river until after midnight, April 27th, but didn’t locate the vehicle. There was rushed brush and tire tracks that led up to the river in the area where the witness reported seeing the truck go in.

The King County Sheriff’s Office, along with Eastside Fire and Rescue, were back out on the river late Monday morning. Around 4PM, April 28th, witnesses reported a truck was found and pulled from the Snoqualmie River, with a crowd watching.

Sergeant West confirmed the truck was located, that it was unoccupied and they didn’t believe anyone was missing.

As of Tuesday, April 29th, the King County Sheriff’s Office ended the investigation, ruling it as “suspicious circumstances,” according to KCSO Sergeant DB Gates.

Gates stated it is unknown how the truck ended up in the river. The vehicle’s owner of was also contacted, who said he had no idea either.

    I drove home past this about an hour ago– they were pulling what looked like a black pickup track (possibly F-150) out of the river while I drove by, and there was a huge crowd.

    • To add more details I’m looking at photos my wife took and it is a dark green F350 super crew (4 door) with a grill guard.

      • Are you sure? I know a guy with a truck exactly like you described who works down there not far from the site. Saw him today, he didn’t say anything about losing his truck in the river…and I think that’s the sort of thing he’d mention if it happened to him.
