TACOMA — The body of a 22-year-old Parkland man who had been missing since Oct. 15 was found earlier this week in Seattle’s Duwamish Waterway, the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department confirmed Thursday.
Young Hills’ body washed up in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood on Monday, said Ed Troyer, the sheriff’s spokesman.
Troyer said there were no indications of foul play, although the medical examiner’s report is still pending. Troyer said it appeared that Hills drove into the Duwamish on Oct. 15, when he was last heard from. Toxicology reports are still pending.
Investigators say Hills left his cousin’s apartment near Seattle’s University District at 6 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, to head home to Parkland, except he never made it there. The last call he made was to a friend to say he took a wrong turn and might be lost. No one heard from him again.
Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood is the last place friends say they located a ping from his cell phone.
