Joshua Guerrier Missing – A search-and-rescue operation was conducted by a number of agencies on Tuesday at the Ranger Hole Trailhead area close to Brinnon in an effort to find a hiker who had been reported missing on Monday.A missing person notification was posted on the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page on Tuesday afternoon. The hiker has been identified as Joshua Guerrier, 28, of Olympia. Guerrier is characterized as being Black, 6 feet, 2 inches tall, 220 pounds, and beard-wearing.
Drone searches will probably continue today, according to Detective Sgt. Brett Anglin of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, who stated that search efforts on Tuesday had produced no results. We are looking into potential areas, Anglin added. “Of course, our hope is that he is still alive in the area somewhere if he is to be found.” Anglin stated that two hikers discovered a pile of clothing, a tied dog, and a phone that looked to be filming at around 3 p.m. on Monday. However, nobody was nearby. The scenario suggested that the individual might have jumped into the chilly, rapid, and high water, according to Anglin. The location has been the focus of prior search and rescue operations, according to Anglin.
Authorities from Jefferson and Pierce counties searched on foot, by helicopter, and with a drone on Monday afternoon, according to Anglin, but they were unable to locate the hiker. The subject’s dog was found thanks in part to Center Valley Animal Rescue, the sheriff’s office reports. Tuesday saw swift water kayak teams from Clallam County Fire District 3 and underwater teams from Pierce County Search and Rescue working with members of the sheriff’s office and Jefferson Search and Rescue to search the region. Anglin said that the Tacoma Police Department also contributed to the search. Anglin can be reached at email@example.com or 360-344-9762 if you have any information about Guerrier’s whereabouts.
