Jared T. Egnew and Madison Egnew Missing
Jared T. Egnew, 21, and his daughter, Madison Egnew, age 1 year and 10 months, were reported missing about mid-day on Friday after they failed to return from a drive near the Lyre River Campground, west of Port Angeles.
“When we find the car abandoned like that, we become worried,” Jefferson County Undersheriff Ron Peregrin told the Peninsula Daily News. “Now they’re exposed to the elements, and that’s what really kicked our search into a higher gear.”
He said a Coast Guard helicopter has joined the search for the missing pair.
According to reports there is no evidence that the mother and father had been fighting prior to the disappearance. Jared Egnew took the baby for a drive to tryi and clam her down. The father, Jared Egnew, and the baby never returned.
“It did not appear that there was any kind of dispute. He just took off with the baby because the baby was fussing he was going to take her for a drive to calm her down. And he never came home,” Peregrin told the Peninsula Daily News.
Clallam County sheriff’s officials said Jared Egnew left the campground at about 11 a.m. Friday to go for a drive with Madison. The little girl had been fussy, and Egnew left thinking that a drive would calm her down. McComb remained behind at the campground.
