Two Bodies Found Near Pittock Mansion in Portland
Pittock Mansion is an amazing spot to take excellent photos of Portland (not to mention the grounds and house itself), tour the historic house, and hike around the trails that surround the mansion. Sadly, two bodies have been found by Portland police near the popular spot.
The Multnomah County Search and Rescue and Mountain Wave Search and Rescue were in the area searching for two hikers, 15-year-old Annieka Vaughan and 23-year-old Zachary Peterson),who had been reported missing.
A body sniffing dog discovered the bodies the day after search and rescue had been called. It has not been said if the bodies recovered were those of the hikers.
They are waiting for the autopsy results to determine the cause of death.
The next of kin need to be notified before authorities disclose the names of the deceased.
