Exclusive: Relative of missing couple surprised by Lake Crescent story

RAYMOND — Imagine picking up a newspaper and reading about your uncle’s parents — thought to have drowned more than 70 years ago in a lake 100 miles away.

“It took the wind out of my sails,” said Ann Klein, who lives in the Pacific County town of Raymond.

She is the niece of Charles Warren, one of two sons left behind after Russell and Mildred Warren mysteriously disappeared July 3, 1929.

The Aberdeen Daily World ran an Associated Press story Monday about divers investigating a mysterious car found on the bottom of Lake Crescent that was believed to belong to the Forks-area couple.

Klein said she read the story’s first two paragraphs and immediately realized who it was about.

“I said, ‘Oh my God.”‘
