Body recovered from Oso landslide area

Update 4:16 p.m.:

The brother of one of the two people still missing after the Oso landslide said the remains discovered today were found on the east side of the site.

Frank Hadaway, whose brother Steve Hadaway is among the missing, said another one of his  brothers received a phone call from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office today saying that remains had been found on the section of the slide site closer to Darrington. Frank Hadaway said the family was not told exactly where the remains were found or when an identity could be released.

In an interview last month, Sheriff Ty Trenary said that Steve Hadaway’s body was believed to be in a deep pool.

Frank Hadaway said he and his family are trying to remain hopeful, but “I’ve heard from day one 8,000 times they’ve found my brother.”
