“Someone was cold and unable to get out of the woods or off the trail or beach,” King said.
A call for search-and-rescue assistance to the LaPush Police Department was made at 3:07 p.m. Christmas afternoon, according to the Peninsula Communications daily call-for-service log.
“It was an individual my officer helped out,” LaPush Police Sgt. Kevin Harris said this morning.
