I can't seem to find anything on the newswires about this, nor on the Spokane County Sheriff page. You would think that it would make the news if he has been missing since yesterday.

I saw it this morning on my facebook.  I don't remember who but it might have been Pullman or Lewiston radio/tv/newspaper that posted it.  I don't think it was one of the Spokane news outlets.

Dang.  So sorry for the family.  :'(

Be safe out there guys and gals.  I can't believe that it's me saying it but be safe in the field.

Here's what Pullman Radio News has on facebook

Search crews found the body of a 59 year old Odessa man who went missing while hunting in Central Whitman County. The body was discovered this afternoon in the Palouse River around one o'clock. More details to be released later today.

Man we have seen too many of these this year already.  Sad, sad, stuff.

Then there was this today.

http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/30/entertainment/oklahoma-craig-strickland-missing/index.html

As a side note, I hunted a couple years at a wheat/cattle ranch between St John and Endicott in the very area where the hunter on the Palouse disappeared.  River must be up, because it wasn't very deep when I was hunting there.

This is sad news. Prayers to the family. I was hunting along the Palouse last weekend and it was too high for me to cross in most spots. All the birds I jumped flew across. It looked like some deep holes in a lot of the slow water.

I happen to work only 6 miles from this place. Joe Delong is one of our customers. I guess I got misinformed on the dog being at the rig. Either way I feel like when the search crew went out the night before at around 10:00 they should have followed the water's edge. If nothing else it would serve as a border to the search area and narrow your field. Suck's that this happened to this guy and hopefully people will better understand how dangerous the water is in weather like this.
