Search For Missing Hunter Continues

The Skamania County Sheriff’s Office continued search efforts on Friday for a lost hunter in the Forlorn Lakes area on the east side of the Indian Heaven Wilderness.  37-year-old Joel Presler of Vancouver remains missing and has not been heard from since last Saturday.  Presler’s pickup was located by deputies on Wednesday off a forest road.  Search efforts Friday were focused on getting ground searchers to the area of Lake Comcomly as well attempting to locate an old cabin in the proximity of where the vehicle was located.  About ten volunteers are assisting along with snowmobiles and personnel from the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.  Weather conditions in the area improved Friday.  Precipitation was minimal with partly cloudy skies.
