A missing 46-year-old man was found dead near the Snow Lake trail, on July 10, after he had not been seen or heard from since July 4, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

The missing man’s car was found at the Snow Lake trailhead and led King County Search and Rescue to began searching for the man on July 9 — the same day his family reported him missing with the Renton Police Department. Not being heard or seen for a long period of time was not normal behavior for the man.

The search was suspended late that same day for safety precautions, but resumed the next morning at 7 a.m. At about 11 a.m., the man was found at the bottom of a 300-foot cliff. Authorities believe the death is a tragic accident, and that the man likely slipped and fell to his death.
