    I tried googling her name to see if any more info would come up, but after three pages of mainly NSFW links (likely unrelated to this missing person) I gave up.

    Delete - inappropriate. May she be recovered soon.

    I couldn’t find this thread with her name added. I was hoping it was over in the located forum. It’s strange how little info is available.

    This is a picture of Lena. She’s one of my coworkers. We haven’t heard anything either

    So the unicorn float is also still missing? Weird. Maybe she (and the float) got out of the water and walked away somewhere? JMO.

    Yeah, the floatie is missing too. That was my thought. And we aren't sure who the friend is that she was with.

    Wow. Sorry to hear about Lena. Very confused about this. Is the general thought that she is “lost at sea” in the lake? Also, thanks for providing a photo of Lena! It helps to put a face to a name. Wishing the best for her & hoping for her safe return!

    Any locals familiar with this lake? Is it dangerous in any way or calm? Are there little islands in it? Is it relatively big? Is swimming popular there?

    Thanks! It is confusing. We don't know but in my opinion, no evidence of a floatie means she could've made it to shore. The area around is heavily forested. It's a fairly long and skinny lake but its glacier water so its very cold, and deep. Water is very clear, not sure how calm

    The float probably popped and is separated from her. Those types of floats are not durable in pools, let alone real bodies of water. Praying she turns up safe.

    I haven't been there in years but know that in the past, it was (is?) a popular spot for fishing, boating, swimming. But it's a very cold, deep lake so I'd be surprised if many people were swimming in it at this time of year. It's about 12 miles long.

    Lake Crescent - Wikipedia

    There is a popular local story about a missing woman who was found in the lake. She was called Lady of the Lake. Lady of the Lake - HistoryLink.org

    @sasha17 & @Stevenbrrss: Thanks for the input about the lake. Interesting. Twelve miles is pretty big. I’m hoping she somehow made it to the forest for unknown reasons and will be found soon.

    Did she know how to swim?

    Not sure, but problem is since its so cold, your body gets tired very quickly

    This article says she entered the lake at mile post 225. Here's a Google Street View of that location:

    [​IMG]

    Here is a link to the spot on the map if you want to "drive" around and check it out for yourself: Google Maps

    As you can see, there's no beach there, no parking lot, no park or any other real reason to stop there. I wonder why she and the friend chose this location. It's about 2.5 hours from Federal Way, where she lives, to this spot at the lake. There are many lakes and beaches much closer to Federal Way. I wish there was more information from the friend she was with about why they were so far away and why they chose this (to me) unusual spot to stop and get in the water.

    I tried to do a screen grab of the Google Maps Streetview of MP 225 of Hwy 101, which is where the PDN article says she entered the lake. Not sure if this will work.

    Great minds and all! I just posted the view of the water from this spot. I agree it's an odd place to stop. There are other places along the lake with actual parking.

    I think the 225 may just refer to where they physically got in the water. But the parking lot and camp ground is at like 229

    Thank you so much for the photo - and for joining Websleuths. Please stick around...WS is a very caring, victim-friendly group of humans drawn to this thread to lend support in finding Lena.
