She was camping with Mellow and Cathy, aka Cat or Cheshire Cat. For photos of all three, click here. If anyone saw Marie, Mellow or Cathy on July 7, 8 or 9, every detail of when and where the interaction happened is very important. Also critical is things like the vibes you got, what kind of a mood they were in, what they were doing and even what they were wearing. If you remember anything, you can contact the sheriff (509-427-9490) or you can contact the family by going to the Find Marie Hanson website. If you prefer, you can call me at 858-405-7503 or email me. Finally, if you want to remain anonymous, post a comment on this blog with any information you may have.
|July 6 Mystery Man|
There was a man Marie was seen with on July 6. He is described by the witness as a white male adult, late 40’s or 50’s, approximately 5’08”, and a thin build and is shown in the sketch to the left. He wore many silver necklaces with medallions, and had rings on his fingers, wore a dark colored Duster type jacket and carried a cane. If you know who he is or are him, we are trying to figure out what was going on with Marie on July 6th.
Also, anyone who was around a dog named "Bandit." The dog was white with a black patch of fur over the eye like lil raskles or a racoon. Hence the bandit name. The dog was being care taken by the man in the sketch. The dog's owner was Cathy. The dog never left Cathy's lap once she arrived at the gathering.
This weekend (Labor Day Weekend), folks will be going back up to the site for three days of searching for Marie Hanson and camping with each other. The search will be through rough terrain, so bring your hiking boots, rope, basic camping gear, plenty of drinking water and some food. This is not a gathering, but a Shanti Sena Search Party and Camp-out to see if we can find Marie Hanson's body. The directions to the gathering are here.
When searching, please use the buddy system, at least 3 people within visual sight of each other at all times. The reason for three is that if someone gets hurt, one person stays with the hurt person, one person goes for help. Furthermore, this will allow you to serve as each other's witnesses in case you find anything.
Finally if you have any information about Marie Hanson’s whereabouts feel free to contact Detective Tim Garrity at the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office at 509-427-9490 or email him.
