NEAR KIRKLAND -- King County search and rescue teams are searching for a missing 13 year-old boy.


Police say that the boy has beenmissing since late Friday night. A full Search and Rescue missing is on-going.


The boy’s name is Mikey Vaughn. Mikey has severe mental problems, with a mental age of about 7. He requires medication every four hours.


Mikey was last scene about 8:00 AM on Friday at Kamiakin, where he is a student. When he didn’t come home from school, his foster parents began looking for him. The Sheriff's Office was notified about 11:30 PM.


The boy was wearing red and blue sneakers, blue jeans, blue T-shirt, a red jacket, and carrying a Huskies-purple backpack. He is about 4’ 7” tall, 70 lbs., with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a severe speech impediment, and lives near Kamiakin with his foster parents.


Anyone who has seen Mikey or knows where he is should call the Sheriff’s Office immediately at (206) 296-3311, or 9-1-1.

Police say Mikey Vaught was found at a friend's house in the Shoreline area. He had been missing since late Friday night.


That's a heck of a long ways awy from Kirkland. As a parent, I'd be pretty ticked off at the hosting parents for not checking.

I wouldn't worry too much about compromised caches when SAR is looking for a person. If they were searching for a gun or knife, however, it would probably be discovered, either before or after the camoflage was removed. :huh: I've seen several blackberry brambles reduced to putting greens simply because someone threw a gun into the bramble whilst running from the police. ;)


On the plus side, I imagine your cache would be recovered. SAR people tend to be pretty civic-minded, and I know several are cachers.

Glad to hear things worked out and that Mikey is fine. It was kind of weird to see mention of the Junior high school that I attended in 9th grade (the first "graduating" class of the brand new school), along with the woods that I did some of my running in until we moved to the Shoreline area.


I haven't lived there in a long time but I sure had some vivid visual memories of the area after reading the OP.
