Kittitas County, WA – 06/01/2020 – Kittitas County is currently running a large ground and air search for Marcus Carroll, a Snohomish County Fire Fighter, in the mountains South-West of Cle Elum. The search efforts are being conducted by Kittitas County Search and Rescue and assisted by King County Search and Rescue and Kittitas County Fire District 7.
On Saturday 5/30/20 at around 7:48 PM, Kittitas County Sheriff’s deputies received a report of an overdue hiker in the area of Peoh Point off Forest Service Road 3350, south of Cle Elum, WA. Marcus Carroll, 24, from Redmond, was hiking alone out to the viewpoint and was last heard from at around 5:00 P.M. His truck was recovered on the access road into the viewpoint.
Marcus is believed to be wearing a navy hooded windbreaker with khaki pants. He is employed as a firefighter for Snohomish County Fire District 7 and North County Fire & EMS. Representatives from both agencies are on-site and assisting with family support and search efforts.
Forest Service Road 3350-114 (the access road into Peoh Point) is currently closed to the public for the search operations and we ask that you please stay clear of the area. If you have any information about the case, please call Kittcom at 509-925-8534.
Sheriff Myers responded to questions concerning a connection between the missing hiker and the suspect of the manhunt stating, ” we do not believe there is any connection, our missing fire-fighter is on the south end of our county, the manhunt for our murder suspect is on the North end of the county. We have no evidence our suspect has left our containment area. We will continue to put all of the resources available into both operations. Finding missing and potentially injured people is among our highest priorities. We appreciate the tremendous support from the upper county and all of the fire/EMS Services.”
