Response to August 2004 Accidents/Rescues


Search and rescue crews have found the body of a 27-year-old hiker from Portland who failed to return from a backpacking trip in the Mount Hood area.

Authorities said Sarah Bishop's body was found at about 2:30 p.m. on Thursday. That was about two miles from her car, which was parked at the Ramona Falls trailhead.
"It looks like she got all the way around the mountain and was on her way out of the trailhead before she became deceased," said Deputy Joel Manley of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators believe strong rains might have been a factor in her death. They do not suspect foul play.

Bishop was the project coordinator for 100% Portland, a nonpartisan group aimed at registering voters.
