DARRINGTON — A 64-year-old Marysville man was found dead Wednesday off the Mountain Loop Highway near Beaver Lake.
Around 8 a.m., someone reported an abandoned vehicle near milepost 43. When Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies discovered the owner wasn’t home, a search and rescue team went looking for him.
The body was found in the woods, a half-mile away from his vehicle. Deputies believe he became disoriented, walked off the trail and fell down an embankment.
A death investigation continues.
