This morning at 11:10 a.m., searchers located the remains of Autumn Jones. An investigation is taking place, but foul play does not appear to be a factor and the public is not at risk.
“Our hearts and prayers go out to the family of Autumn Jones,” said Sheriff Gary Bettencourt. “Although this is not the outcome that we had hoped for, this will give some closure to Autumn’s family.
”The Gilliam County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the numerous agencies and volunteers that assisted the Search and Rescue efforts. No other information will be given at this time. Please respect the family’s privacy.
