Woman Found Near Trout Lake

Skamania County Search and Rescue located a 44-year-old Vancouver woman whose car battery died west of Trout Lake.  According to the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office…the department received a report at 4:20 p.m. Sunday that Shawna Lamb had become lost while hiking above Stevenson as she was solo camping.  Her husband had received a call from her that her car battery had died and her cell phone was almost out of battery.  He told dispatchers Lamb gave him directions but was unable to locate her.  A search & rescue Deputy made contact with the husband and found the location was not in the Stevenson area but Trout Lake, some 50 miles Northeast.  The deputy started checking spurs near Mt. Adams, and located Lamb 5 1/2 hours later after checking 70 miles of roadway.  She was in Yakima County near “Backstrap Trail.”  The deputy assisted in getting her vehicle running and then reunited her with her husband.
