Remains identified as missing Anacortes man

Human remains found by a hiker in a remote area of Skagit County a few days ago have been identified as those of an Anacortes man who went missing 2 1/2 years ago, according to KOMO-TV.

Keith Anderson, 62, had been missing since Jan. 6, 2010, when his family believes he may have gone on a dump run in Snohomish County. The search was focused around a remote logging road in Skagit County, about 20 miles northwest of Darrington, where Anderson’s Ford pickup was found about two weeks after he disappeared.

Anderson had a history of medical problems, including depression and high blood pressure, the Anacortes American reported at the time of his disappearance. Police say he may have been depressed due to recent family problems.

Anderson’s son, Jake Anderson, is known to many TV viewers as a deck hand on the Seattle-based crab fishing vessel Northwestern, featured on the Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch,” according to KOMO.
