Olympic National Park: Car found in Lake Crescent isn’t missing couple’s Chevy

Lake Crescent is holding on to its 72-year-old mystery of what happened to Russell and Mildred Warren.

An old car discovered at the bottom of Pirates Cove turned out to be a Ford Model A of an unknown year — not the 1927 Chevrolet that belonged to the Forks-area couple who disappeared in 1929, Olympic National Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said Tuesday.

Lake Crescent lies within the park, just west of Port Angeles.

On July 3, 1929, Warren picked up his wife, who had been a patient at the Port Angeles hospital, along with a new washing machine, and was driving back to a logging camp on the Bogachiel River.

They never arrived — and were never seen again.
