SNOHOMISH — A skeletal comparison confirmed a body found near Snohomish on Saturday was that of Kenna Harris, 25, a Monroe woman who had been missing for six months.
Harris was last seen alive in late March. She had suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car crash about six years earlier. Outwardly she did not appear disabled, though the injury did take a toll on her mental health, according to her family.
She walked into a Subway in Snohomish on the afternoon of March 31, asked about gluten-free bread, then left. She was never heard from again.
Searches were fruitless until Saturday, when a search crew covered ground in a “secluded wooded area” that hadn’t been checked before, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. The exact location was not made public.
Her family posted on social media Saturday afternoon that Harris’ body had been found.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the body’s identity by comparing Harris’ past X-rays with the remains. The cause and manner of death were undetermined, the medical examiner’s office announced Tuesday.
The remains showed no obvious signs of physical trauma, suggesting no evidence of foul play.
Harris’ family thanked everyone who had helped search for her over the past months.
“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,” read a post on the Facebook group Please Find Kenna Harris. “Kenna was the sparkle in our family and our own personal rainbow. We will always miss her.”
