Clallam: Divers make finds near 1929 car crash site

LAKE CRESCENT — Divers made some “significant findings” in Lake Crescent on Saturday afternoon near where a Forks area couple are believed to have driven into the lake and drowned in 1929, according to an Olympic National Park spokeswoman.

The spokeswoman, a dispatcher at the Storm King Ranger Station at Lake Crescent, said ranger Dan Pontbriand would not disclose the findings. The material will be evaluated by investigators in the next day or two to determine if it is connected to Russell and Blanch Warren. The couple have been the subject of several diving expeditions in the lake the past few months.

Warren family relatives are being contacted to see if any family history could help relate personal items to one of the Warrens.
