The car registered to a Seattle woman who has been missing since April was found last week in a remote area in Grays Harbor County.

The vehicle registered to Donna Van Zandt, 33, of Seattle, was located by hunters scouting an area near Neilton on a remote logging road, according to the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office.

A sheriff’s deputy determined the car likely had been  there for several months because of the vegetation that had grown around it. The vehicle’s keys were still inside, but there was nothing to indicate what may have happened to the driver.

Investigators contacted Van Zandt’s family members, who said they had not had seen her or talked with her since April. Family members said Van Zandt’s father was murdered in New York in January and April marked the second anniversary of her mother’s death.

Anyone with information about Van Zandt or her location is asked to call Sheriff’s Office Detective Keith Peterson at 360-249-3711.
