Detectives ask for help in identifying remains found on Mount Si

NORTH BEND -- Detectives with the King County Sheriff's Office are asking for the public's help in identifying skeletal remains found on Mount Si.

Earlier this month, two off-trail hikers came across what they believed was human skeletal remains near the "haystack" on Mount Si.

Sheriff's deputies responded to the scene, collected the remains and brought them to the King County Medical Examiner's Office.

Medical examiners determined that the remains are from a Caucasian male, 30-60 years old, who was likely between 5'7"-6' tall. A cause of death has not yet been determined.

Detectives believe the remains have been in place on the popular hiking spot since the mid-90s.
