Search resumes Friday for missing Seattle mushroom expert

WENATCHEE  — Another daylong search has failed to find a 79-year-old Seattle woman who has been missing since Saturday when she went mushroom hunting alone off a Forest Service road about 10 miles north of Lake Wenatchee.

A dispatcher for the Chelan County sheriff’s office said late Thursday night that the search for Hildegard Hendrickson would resume Friday morning.

Multiple search-dog teams and dozens of searchers have been covering trails in the area.

Undersheriff John Wisemore says a grid search was conducted in a half-mile area around the spot where the woman’s car was located.

Hendrickson is a retired Seattle University faculty member and mushroom expert.

Wisemore says fellow mushroom pickers familiar with the woman’s methods of searching for mushrooms have also been assisting in the search.

Hendrickson lives alone, and no one knew she had failed to return from a day trip until her car was noticed Tuesday at a trailhead.
