New search planned for missing mushroom hunter

Chelan County Sheriff deputies will  search Tuesday for Hildegard Hendrickson, who has been missing since June 8 when she went mushroom hunting.

Sgt. Kent Sisson said an already planned training session for volunteer searchers  will be used to look in ravine areas “quite away from where she was last seen,’’ in what he described as “less probable areas.’’

For a week after Henrickson disappeared, 60 searchers on foot, horseback, in a helicopter and with search dogs, combed a half-mile radius of where her car was found but turned up no evidence.

Hendrickson, 79, a faculty member at Seattle University, was last seen June 8 when she told other mushroom hunters at the Minnow Creek trailhead, 15 miles northeast of Lake Wenatchee, that she was going alone to search  for morels.

Last week, dozens of her friends, many from the  Puget Sound Mycological Society to which she  belonged and taught mushroom identification for years, gathered in a vigil to mourn her disappearance.

“It would be nice to know what happened,’’ said Marian Maxwell, president of the society.
