Missing man's body found Saturday at Snoqualmie Falls

A Sammamish man, reported missing by his family, fell to his death early Saturday, April 6, at Snoqualmie Falls.

According to Snoqualmie Police Capt. Nick Almquist, police pinged the 40-year-old man's phone in the early morning hours of Saturday morning, and found that he was in the vicinity of the Falls. His body was found below the overlook at first light.

It's the first such death at the Falls since mid-December of 2012, when a man fell to his death from the overlook.

Police say that those who seek emotional support or are considering suicide can get help from the Crisis Clinic of Seattle-King County, by calling their 24-hour help line at (206) 461-3222.
