Kittitas County, WA -
The Kittitas County Sheriff's Office has concluded the search for Marcus Carroll, a Snohomish County Fire Fighter. His body was located shortly before dark on the cliff-face on the west side of Peoh Point.
Marcus Carroll was hiking alone out to the viewpoint and was last heard from Saturday at around 5:00 P.M. His truck was recovered on the access road into the viewpoint. Kittitas County Search and Rescue members terminated the search this evening when drone footage verified his body on the west face of the cliff. Due to the technical aspects needed and the time of night, Mr. Carroll's body will be recovered in the morning.
The Sheriff offered his condolences stating, "on behalf of our first responders, our heartfelt thoughts are with the family and friends of Marcus Carroll. We pray their anguish and grief will give way to acceptance and some level of peace".
