Valley man’s body found on rural road

A 23-year-old North Bend man was found dead Tuesday, Jan. 20, in his vehicle on a remote road near Southeast 53rd and 396th Avenue Southeast.

According to reports from the King County Sheriff’s Department, the man had been reported missing by his parents on Sunday, Jan. 11.

There were no signs of foul play.

The man’s body was found by two teens from Snoqualmie, who were driving on the road and stopped to look at the man’s vehicle, a 1989 Ford Bronco. Police did not know how long the vehicle had been there.

The King County Medical Examiner’s office is investigating the cause and manner of death, pending further studies. Lab results are expected in about nine weeks.
