WA - Connie Koch, 62, Lake Stevens, 9 April 2009
29 March 09
The family of a missing woman who vanished with few clues is asking for help from the public in locating her.
Connie Koch, 64, of Lake Stevens suffers from multiple medical problems, and her family is worried that time may be running out since it appears she left without her medication.
Koch disappeared on Thursday just as she was about to fly to Texas for specialized medical treatment. Her brother saw her at 2 p.m. that day, but when he came to her house at 4 p.m. she was gone.
...her car and cell phone are missing.
Police say her phone was able to receive a text message not long after Koch vanished.
"The text message bounced off a repeater up on Malone Ridge area in Skykomish," says Sgt. Ron Brooks of the Lake Stevens Police Department. Officers believe she may have headed for the Stevens Pass area.
She is described as white, with blue eyes and blond hair, standing 5-feet-4-inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds. She also goes by the name "Constance."
Police say she may be in a 2005 Toyota Corolla with license plate 971 VOL. If anyone sees it, they should contact the Lake Stevens police.

Missing woman's car found in mountains
Apr 18, 2009 at 8:07 PM PDT
A car found down an embankment Saturday near Stevens Pass belongs to a Lake Stevens woman who disappeared with hardly a trace last month, the woman's family said.
Washington State Patrol Trooper Brandon Lee confirmed that the car belongs to Connie Koch, 64, of Lake Stevens. A body was found in the vehicle, but a positive identification has not yet been made."Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." ~ Henry James

They say the worker happened to be standing near the edge of an embankment near the summit of Stevens Pass waiting for avalanche crews to finish their afternoon work.
"He was walking around the front of it way up high and he looked down and saw it, saw the car," said Charles Styles, WSDOT Supervisor.
Styles says the car was flipped over, about 200 feet down the steep slope.
The car looks like it may have been heading westbound and went over the embankment, said state patrol investigators.
"We were just lucky [the DOT worker who discovered the car] was up high enough because that bank is so steep,” said Styles. “If you were driving by it, even in a scoop, you wouldn't see it because it's so steep."
Koch's family has been searching in and around the area ever since she disappeared. In an earlier interview with KING 5, they say the last they heard from her was a text message that just said "Look at Stevens Pass."

Sounds like she survived the accident, sent a text message, and later died. May she rest in peace.

This is so sad - her son is on another internet forum that I am part of and he posted this information after she went missing. She was very sick and supposed to be traveling to Texas for treatment the day after she went missing. I am thankful that they have closure now and can put her to rest.
