    Following the discovery of Krishna Venkatesh’s Toyota Corolla at a parking lot at Deception Pass State Park, a missing persons search is now underway.
    Deception Pass is roughly 75 miles north of the Seattle/Redmond area.

    Attempts have been made to obtain data from Venkatesh’s smartphone via T-Mobile to help locate him, but T-Mobile has yet to comply with the requests.

    So cool that one of his friends created this app that shows exactly where he drove, along with the times pinpointed.

    Yikes! Lots of accidental and too many purposeful deaths on and around Deception Pass Bridge. Its a beautiful park, but lots of steep trails with rocks and ocean below. I hope he is found soon and safely!

    Cellphone data show his last GPS location near Deception Pass, where his car was found at the south bridge parking lot Monday afternoon.
    As Aunt Tulip notes above, this is a beautiful but dangerous area.

    If he got up here after 7:30 pm, as it looks like the last pins were around 8:00 pm, it would already be dark. You don't really stop at Deception Pass in the dark for anything. There are no businesses or convenience stores, gas stations, anything like that within maybe 1/2 a mile to a mile either direction. I read yesterday that dogs were used in a search, but the article didn't say anything about results. Just that they found his car locked and nothing looked out of place.

    Has there been any new info today?

    Seems they are going to close the FB page and refer to a website that has been made for him. There are no new updates.

    Sounds like they are fairly sure he is dead

    Search for missing Capitol Hill man Krishna Venkatesh winds down

    With the search for a missing Capitol Hill man providing few new answers in the weeks since his car was found near Deception Pass, friends and loved ones of Krishna Venkatesh have turned their attention to remembering the 27-year-old.

    After more than two months, police have no new leads on missing Microsoft employee

    It has been more than two months since Krishna Venkatesh, a program manager at Microsoft Corp. in Redmond, went missing and police are still looking for him.

    [snip]

    Police had one lead suggesting Venkatesh had driven to Deception Pass as they found his car in the area, but nothing has resulted from this, according to the SPD.

    Not just his car, but they followed cell phone data all the way up there too and searched the area pretty thoroughly right away. Its sad that the family and friends probably have to assume he jumped.
