The car belonging to 36-year-old Milton was found at Deception Pass by park employees at 8:30 a.m. Saturday. Washington State Patrol responded and verified that it was Milton’s car, and said the keys were still inside.
“We’ve covered most of the park, but the biggest concern is the water, and that’s fast-moving water through there,” park manager Jack Hartt said. “It’s very difficult to find anybody if they are in the water.”
At the request of Seattle police and fire departments, the Coast Guard flew one of its rescue helicopters at Deception Pass, but found no sign of Milton. Rescue boats from North Whidbey Island Fire and Rescue also returned empty handed following a days-long search of the area.
