SNOHOMISH — Human remains were found Saturday morning during a search for a missing Monroe woman, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
“As a family, we take comfort in the fact that Kenna is with God and we know we will be with her again one day,” family wrote on the “Please Find Kenna Harris” page. “Kenna was the sparkle in our family and our own personal rainbow.”
Harris had suffered severe head trauma from a high-speed roll-over crash six years ago and stayed with family as she recovered. Instead of getting on her bus for work on March 31, she apparently packed a backpack, including a yoga mat and her daily medications, and walked away from her family’s home. Around noon, she took the remaining $230 out of her account at Chase Bank. She got on a Community Transit bus and took it to Snohomish Station, where she briefly stopped in at a Subway sandwich shop to see if they had any gluten-free bread. They didn’t.
The Subway employee is the last person who reported seeing Harris.
Deputies with the sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit and members of the Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue Team conducted Saturday’s search. A news release didn’t state where they searched, but noted they hadn’t looked at that particular area in previous operations. The sheriff’s office has notified the family of their discovery. The scene was being processed by sheriff’s detectives and the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.
