PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Richard Sugai of Beaverton went missing while picking mushrooms with family in an area of Skamania they’ve been going to for decades.
Sugai’s family reported him missing on Saturday — it had gotten dark out and he still hadn’t returned. He was last seen walking into the woods at on the USFS 60 Road, about 10 miles north of Carson, Washington.
Teams searched from Saturday night through Monday and Tuesday without any sign of Sugai. The search was suspended Wednesday morning after crews failed to find any sign of Sugai.
They will search again on Saturday when the weather is better.
The situation is especially worrisome because the 78-year-old requires daily medication.
