Medical Examiner Issues Reminder On Unidentified Cases And Missing Persons

April 16, 2018

Police Blotter

A reminder today from the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office about what to do if you need to report someone missing or have reported someone missing over five years ago to make sure they are still in a national database.

Family help

A website is available to help identify missing family members.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office has confirmed the identification and completed the examination of the 40-year old male whose skeletal remains were discovered in the 9800 block of 27th Avenue NE, Tulalip, on March 25, 2018. The decedent is Shawn D. Bond of Lake Stevens, WA. The cause and manner of death are undetermined. For further information, please contact the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

Mr. Bond was identified within several days of his discovery because he had been reported missing to law enforcement shortly after his disappearance and records that would help identify him were on file. If you have any information about this or any other case, please call the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office at (425) 438-6200. Please check our website for unidentified Snohomish County cases at

Call 911 if you need to report someone missing. If you have reported someone missing over 5 years ago and they are still missing, call the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office at (425) 388-3393 (then press “0”) with the person’s full name and date of birth to check that they are still entered as a missing person; older cases may have been inadvertently removed from the database. If you check with the Sheriff’s Office and they tell you that the person you are missing is not in the system, ask that they take a new missing person report.
