Search Begins for Missing Washington Elk Hunter
Authorities have started searching for a missing elk hunter that is overdue and has not been seen since Saturday. The 37 year old hunter, Joel Presler, last contacted his family on Saturday the 11th and his truck was found deserted on Wednesday. Police say it looks like he hasn't been to his truck in days and his family thinks he wouldn't stay far from it. Now a search party of people on foot and on snowmobiles is searching for him in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
The forecast in the area calls for 6-10 more inches of snow today.
