Police Blotter

Editor’s Update 7:30 AM: Everett Police report the body of a child matching the description of the missing girl was recovered around 2:30 AM after being spotted in the water by a citizen. Everett Police Lieutenant Karen White tells foul play is not suspected. The Snohomish County Medical Examiner will determine the cause and manner of death and identify the victim. Thornton A. Sullivan Park at Silver Lake will be open to the public today. Note: There are no lifeguards at Silver Lake and haven’t been for seven years. Back in 2015 the City of Everett eliminated the lifeguard program at Silver Lake Due to budget cuts.
Editor’s Update 1:30 AM: The search was called due to darkness and as of this writing the girl had not been located. Searchers will be back out at the park at Silver Lake in the daylight Sunday.

Multiple volunteer search teams coordinated by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s office responded.
