MAPLE VALLEY — A body was found in a missing Renton man’s pickup truck down a Maple Valley ravine.
The King County Sheriff’s Office says the 54-year-old man’s girlfriend reported him missing Thursday after he did not return from work the day before.
Family members used cellphone GPS to locate his truck about 200 feet down a steep, wooded ravine. The body, which was partially inside the truck, has not yet been officially identified by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
It took two large tow trucks several hours Friday morning to drag the truck out of the ravine.
