GRANITE FALLS — The search for missing hiker Samantha Sayers at Vesper Peak has been suspended, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday afternoon.
Teams will continue to check the area as snow melts and weather permits.
“We have exhausted all leads and tips. We’ve interviewed all witnesses who have come forward. We have checked and double-checked the possible routes we believe Sam could have taken,” Search & Rescue Sgt. John Adams said in a news release.
Crews have searched in every spot Sayers could have gone, he said, and people were often put at risk because of the rugged environment.
