Another day of searching and still no luck in trying to locate the Girard native lost in a remote area of Washington state.
Samantha Sayers has been missing since August 1st after setting out on a solo hike in a remote area of Vesper Peak, about 75 miles outside of Seattle. Her mother said on social media today that the family remains hopeful of a safe return, even though she hasn’t been heard from in a week. She asks for anyone who has connections with professional search and rescuers or K-9 units to please contact the Utica police to assist.
Her boyfriend, Kevin Dares, also used Facebook to announce a $20,000 reward fund for anyone who locates Sayers.
