Search goes on for hiker missing on Sauk Mountain

Monday, October 4, 2010 By KOMO-TV

Posted Image

CONCRETE -- Searchers set out for a second day near the Sauk Mountain trail on Monday, hoping to find a 65-year-old woman who got separated from her family during weekend hike and hasn't been seen since.

Patty Krieger was last seen about 1 p.m. on Saturday while with her family.

A helicopter from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island joined dozens of ground crews on Monday in the search for Krieger, who officials said is not an experienced hiker and was not dressed for cold overnight temperatures.

"We're just hoping and praying she comes off the mountain," said her sister, Nancy Peterson.

Her family said Krieger may have been distraught after their group hiked to the top of Sauk Mountain to spread the ashes of two loved ones who recently died.

As they were coming down from the summit turned onto a different trail. The group yelled for her to come back, but then let her go -- thinking the other trail hooked back up -- but it doesn't.

"We called to her - she looked right at us," says Nichole Gardner, who was hiking right alongside Krieger on Saturday.

Krieger's 100-pound Rottweiler that was with her on the hike is also missing. But officials say the dog may be helpful if Krieger is lost.

"One, it's warm. Curl up next to your dog for extra warmth," said Skagit County sheriff's Deputy Brad Holmes. "For us it also adds a second item -- it doubles our chances of finding something."

Search crews from King and Snohomish Counties are joining the search effort on Monday, and officials said they are also brining in tracking dogs.

Krieger's family was at the trail head Monday morning as searchers set out for another day scouring the trails and peaks.

"All you can do is really just be here to show support," said Krieger's sister-in-law, Joyce Aungst. "And we've given it to God and he's in control of everything anyways."

Peterson said her sister is a very strong woman.

"If anybody can make it, she could."

Anyone with information should call 911.

Police Believe Missing Woman No Longer On Sauk Mountain

Posted: 7:54 am PDT October 5, 2010Updated: 3:18 pm PDT October 5, 2010

SKAGIT COUNTY, Wash. -- Skagit County search and rescue teams called off the search Monday night for a missing 65-year old woman on Sauk Mountain because there is no indication she remains in the area, authorities said.

Patty Kreiger disappeared after she walked away from a group of family and friends Saturday after Kreiger, her fiancé Larry Pressley, and several family members hiked up the mountain to scatter the ashes of Larry's parents.

Family said on the way down, Patty became emotional. She and her 100-pound Rottweiler named Bear veered onto another trail, ignoring their calls to come back.

Since then, Kreiger’s family, fiancé and the Skagit County rescue team combed rough terrain with search dogs while a Navy chopper searched from the air.

But Monday night, the last people to see Krieger alive gathered around a campfire on the mountain said they were devastated to hear rescue teams called off the massive mountain search.

“We don’t want to quit! Not now,” said Pressley. “We just thought she’d be back and we started to hunt and we called the cops. We did everything we were supposed to do. We called every news place we could.”

Deputy John Hendrickson said one of the reasons they pulled the plug on the search was because the only scent picked up by dogs leads down the trail, to the parking lot.

“Everything that I know inside me, in my experience tells me that she is not on the mountain,” said Hendrickson. “She had ample time to walk down to the parking lot and catch a ride.”

The deputy said Kreiger could have gotten in a car with a stranger, but Pressley said he knows members of Krieger's family are suspicious of him.

“Now they think I did something wrong. I didn’t,” said Pressley.

Deputy Hendrickson backs Pressley up.

“If there was any evidence of foul play, we would have seen it,” said Hendrickson.

Pressley said his group intends to put up wanted posters.

Missing woman's son: Her boyfriend is packing, not searching

By John Discepolo  Story Published: Oct 11, 2010 at 11:05 PM PDT Story Updated: Oct 12, 2010 at 9:06 AM PDT

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. -- The search for a missing Skagit County woman is now part of a legal battle.

A week and a half has passed since Patty Krieger disappeared on Sauk Mountain. While her family and friends continue to hold out hope in finding her, the focus on Monday was on her house.

Krieger has lived at her Mount Vernon home for eight years, most recently with her boyfriend, Larry Pressley.

On Monday, friends spread word out about a new Facebook page dedicated to finding Krieger.

But when they arrived at the house to inform Pressley of the news, he was already packing up her stuff onto a pickup truck. Krieger's son, Alan Patterson, was frustrated by what he found.

"Beer cans everywhere - looked like they were having a good old time in here," he said. "And they were too busy loading up the truck, trying to get stuff out of the house. Maybe they could be up on the mountain, doing a little bit of something to help this situation."

Patterson said he received a court order on Monday to evict Pressley off his mother's property. But a deputy serving it didn't have the paperwork necessary to order Pressley to leave the trailer.

"Things like today require action, so I did what was necessary with my family members and we took action. I think we got some fairly good results from it," said Patterson.

From the beginning, Patterson has said Pressley and the rest of the hikers shouldn't have let Krieger go off on her own. For now, he's focusing not giving up the search while protecting what she left behind.

A deputy is investigating reported recent sightings of Krieger's dog on the mountain.

Patterson plans to resume the search Tuesday morning. He's offering a $2,000 reward for an arrest or conviction if this does turn out to be a crime, or $500 for the return or whereabouts of Krieger's body, no questions asked.

Son continues search for missing mother

By DAN MITCHINSON KIRO Radio Updated Oct 13, 2010 - 7:55 am

The search for a 65-year-old hiker on Sauk Mountain was called off last week. But her son continues the search, while trying to protect what his mom left behind.

Patty Krieger has been missing for less than two weeks, she disappeared during a trail hike with friends in Skagit County.

But her son, Alan Patterson, says his mom's boyfriend is acting suspiciously.

"My attorney got a couple of statements from people that indicated that Larry was removing property, personal items of my moms, from the property up there."

Patterson won't comment on Larry Pressley's prison record, but he told KIRO Radio's Ron & Don that Presley and the rest of the hikers shouldn't have let Krieger go down the mountain on her own.

"They hollered over to her saying she was going down the wrong trail, and according to them, she looked back at them and then turned around and kept walking," Patterson says.

Patterson says there are only two reasons why Krieger would have left the trail head.

"A, somebody drugged her and she was out of it, b, She was scared for her life."

Investigators: Missing Hiker May Be On Sauk Mountain After All


Posted: 3:51 pm PDT October 28, 2010Updated: 6:40 pm PDT October 28, 2010

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. -- The dog belonging to Patricia Krieger, who disappeared on a hike on Sauk Mountain Oct. 2, has been found, malnourished but alive, the Skagit County Sheriff's Office said. Now, in a contradiction of earlier statements, investigators are theorizing that Krieger may still be on Sauk Mountain after all.

A search began Oct. 2 for Krieger, 65, after she became separated from family and friends on the mountain.

Police called off the search on Oct. 5 when they said evidence led them to believe Krieger was no longer on the mountain.

"Everything that I know inside me, in my experience tells me that she is not on the mountain," Deputy John Hendrickson said earlier this month. "She had ample time to walk down to the parking lot and catch a ride."

The only scent picked up by dogs led police back down to a parking lot area, police said.

Kriger’s dog, Bear, which was found alive on Thursday, was believed to be with her.

Now that Bear has reappeared, investigators said they think the dog stayed with Krieger for a long time before wandering off.

Investigators said they want to take Bear back to the search area, but the dog is a long way from being healthy enough to do so and the area in question is now covered in deep snow.

Bear was underweight when he was found, but he's been taken to a vet and is on a special diet to regain his strength, the Sheriff's Office said.

Someone spotted the dog on Wednesday in the Rockport area, and deputies have confirmed it is Bear, the Sheriff's Office said.

KIRO 7 Eyewitness News is following the new developments closely and will update this story as more information becomes availalble.

Snow blocks missing Mount Vernon woman's dog
Searchers took a missing Mount Vernon woman's dog back to Sauk Mountain, but snow prevented them from reaching the spot where Patricia Krieger was last seen.

The Associated Press
Originally published Monday, November 1, 2010 at 9:43 AM

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. — Searchers took a missing Mount Vernon woman's dog back to Sauk Mountain, but snow prevented them from reaching the spot where Patricia Krieger was last seen.

After Saturday's unsuccessful search, Skagit County sheriff's Chief Criminal Deputy Will Reichardt told the Skagit Valley Herald that weather will dictate the next attempt.

The 65-year-old Krieger disappeared Oct. 2 when she and her dog became separated from her boyfriend and a few of his relatives. They had scattered his parents' ashes on the 5,500-foot mountain in the North Cascades. The search was called off Oct. 5.

On Wednesday, her dog - a Rottweiler named Bear - was found near Rockport, malnourished and underweight.

Son believes missing mom is on Sauk Mountain

Updated Nov 2, 2010 - 1:45 pm By JAMIE GRISWOLD

After his mother's dog was found alive on Sauk Mountain, Alan Patterson says he thinks his mother is still on the mountain.

"The fact that the dog was found on the mountain really confirms what I've been thinking all along, that my mother is on that mountain."

Patty Krieger went missing Oct. 2 while hiking on Sauk Mountain. Her 3-year-old Rottweiler was found last week, five miles from the trailhead.

"It was about 35 to 40 pounds lighter than it was the last time it had been seen. Its paws were pretty beaten up. His nails were completely gone and frayed from what they're assuming was some time spent on some pretty rough terrain," said Patterson.

Patterson says he's accepted that his mother has likely not survived this long on the mountain.

"I've come to accept that," Patterson said. "It's extremely tough. I think recovering my mom will, one, give my family closure, but I think there's going to be some information that we're going to be able to get from her that's going to let us know exactly what happened."

Patterson says he's been communicating closely with the sheriff, and is planning to continue his own recovery mission with funds collected at the Find Patty Krieger facebook page.

Man returns to mountain in quest to find missing mom
By Elizabeth Dinh

Story Published: Nov 4, 2010 at 10:47 AM PDT
Story Updated: Nov 4, 2010 at 12:03 PM PDT

DARRINGTON, Wash. - A local man's mission to find his missing mother got a boost Thursday from supporters who donated enough money to fund a helicopter lift to the area where she disappeared.

Sixty-five-year-old Patty Krieger was last seen Oct. 2 when she and some friends got separated during a hike on Sauk Mountain.

And on Thursday, her son Alan Patterson made his fourth trip up the mountain to look for her. He knows the terrain is rough, at some parts scary - but he's determined to find his mother.

He and four others started off early, meeting at Darrington Municipal Airport in Snohomish County before dawn.

"My mom deserves to be remembered. She deserves every bit of effort put into this and everybody's support," Patterson says. 

Patty Krieger was last seen about 1 p.m. on Oct. 2 as she was returning with a group of friends from a hike to the top of Sauk Mountain to spread the ashes of two loved ones who recently died.

As the group was coming down from the summit Krieger turned onto a different trail. The group yelled for her to come back, but then let her go - thinking the other trail hooked back up - but it doesn't.

Patty Krieger's dog, a Rottweiler named "Bear," disappeared with her. But he reappeared last week, 30 pounds thinner - yet giving Patterson hope he'll find his mom.

His plan on Thursday is to focus on 500 yards of a creek area - a place he's been before, but on the other side.

"The more I look at it, it just really seems maybe I was looking on the wrong side," he says. "I might have been where I needed to be the first time."

There are dangerous spots, with sharp drop-offs and extreme terrain.

But a couple of things help Patterson stay hopeful.

First, the nearly 1,000 people following the "Find Patty Krieger" page on Facebook.

"It's encouraging, just knowing there are that many people out there that are paying attention to what's going on with my mom," he says.

And second, the memories of having a resilient mom.

"Very strong woman. She'd been recently training to do a triathlon up in Alaska with my nieces and she's not a quitter," Patterson says. "Whatever happened, she fought her way all the way through it."

After the helicopter drops off Patterson, his uncle and three friends at Sauk Mountain, they'll have about six or seven hours to search before they come back.

The men could have hiked to Sauk Mountain - but it would've taken three hours on foot. Patterson was able to take the helicopter ride out there because of a flood of donations on Facebook.

Boyfriend believes Krieger alive, but not on Sauk Mountain
Updated Nov 8, 2010 - 2:37 pm
MyNorthwest.com staff

The boyfriend of Patty Krieger, a 65-year-old woman reported missing on Sauk Mountain a month ago, believes she is still alive.

Larry Pressley told KIRO Radio's Ron and Don that despite questions raised of why she would choose to disappear when she owns three cars and seven houses, as well as a portfolio of investments, that is what he believed happened.

"When I got home, off this mountain, I got all her stuff, and I took it to the cops," said Pressley. According to Pressley, he gave the Skagit County Sheriff's office Krieger's bank statements and cell phone information.

Pressley said he doesn't know if her bank assets have been accessed recently, or if her cell phone has been used, which might be significant evidence to knowing whether Krieger is still alive.

Krieger's son, Alan Patterson, believes his mom is still on the mountain and has turned his search efforts into a recovery effort.

Pressley disagrees, "I don't believe she's up there."

Son keeps up lonely search for his missing mother

By Marlee Ginter Published: Aug 13, 2011 at 6:20 PM PDT Last Updated: Aug 13, 2011 at 7:11 PM PDT

SAUK MOUNTAIN, Wash. - It's been 10 months and 11 days since 65-year-old Patty Krieger disappeared while hiking with friends on Sauk Mountain.

No one has seen or heard from her since, leaving her son with nothing but unanswered questions. And not a day goes by that Alan Patterson doesn't think about her.

In that time, he's seen the searches for Krieger dwindle from a team effort to a lone mission of love carried out by him - and him alone.

New tips spark fresh search for missing Skagit Co. woman

By Elizabeth Dinh
Published: Dec 31, 2011 at 5:37 PM PST

Posted Image

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. - New tips led to a new search Saturday for clues about a Skagit County woman who disappeared nearly 15 months ago while hiking on Sauk Mountain.

A small team spent this morning looking for clues, clothing - or any sign of Patti Krieger. Her son, Alan Patterson, and a group of family and friends combed through a wooded area in Mount Vernon.

After all this time, Patterson still holds on to hope.

Patti Krieger’s son maintains vigil for missing mom

ROCKPORT — It has been nearly three years since Alan Patterson’s mother Patti Krieger disappeared. While the case remains cold, he is still searching for her, hoping one day he and his family can find closure.

 

Krieger, 65 when she went missing, was last seen Oct. 2, 2010, while hiking with friends to spread the ashes of her boyfriend’s parents on Sauk Mountain. She separated from the group with her dog, a Rottweiler named Bear. The dog turned up in Rockport several weeks later, malnourished and underweight. But there has been no sign of Krieger, despite multiple searches of the area by law enforcement and volunteers.

 

“It’s difficult at times to move forward with that big question mark over your shoulder,” Patterson said.

 

In the past three years, he has has roamed the entire mountain more than seven times and flown over it in helicopters. He has combed nearby roads, highways and any areas tipsters point toward.

 

Law enforcement has also picked through the area using helicopters fitted with thermal-imaging technology and used dogs to try and find any remains. Whatcom, Snohomish and King counties’ search-and-rescue teams assisted but without success. Investigators said the case has not been forgotten.

 

“It’s a continual open case that were not going to close until it comes to a conclusion,” said Detective Sgt. Keith Brown with the Skagit County Sheriff’s Office.

 

But with no crime scene and no sign of Krieger, progress is difficult. Brown said investigators follow up on every promising tip but they can end up leading in circles.

 

Krieger’s boyfriend at the time of her disappearance, 45-year-old Larry L. Pressley, was sentenced to 10 years in prison this month on unrelated federal weapons charges. He was on the mountain with Krieger when she disappeared and is one of the last people to see her alive.

Investigators said Pressley is not a suspect in the missing persons case.

 

“Any leads or tips that have come in about him have been followed up on, and nothing has led us to consider him anything other than a witness at this point,” Brown said.

 

Patterson just wants closure. His mother worked for Fred Meyer for more than 30 years and raised two kids by herself. He said his mother was always there for him and for her friends.

 

“We want to put her to rest properly and give her the burial she … deserved,” Patterson said.

 

Social media pages and websites dedicated to finding Krieger were set up by friends and co-workers. Patterson said the support has meant a lot to him and other relatives.

 

“I know I am not alone,” he said.

 

Patterson encouraged anyone with information who wishes to remain anonymous to contact the Skagit County Sheriff’s Office at 360-419-7785.
