Body of Sabrina Cole found in Chehalis River

The search is over for a missing 45-year-old Native American woman from Oakville, according to Chehalis Tribal Police.

According to the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office, the body of Sabrina Lynn Cole was found in a car that was submerged in the Chehalis River.

Volunteer searchers located what they believed to be a car in the river on Saturday, and after using an underwater camera they were able to confirm the vehicle belonged to Cole.

On Monday, officials were able to attach tow lines to the car and remove it from the river. Sadly, the body of Sabrina Cole was found inside.

Cole had last been seen with family members at the Quinault Beach Resort and Casino in Ocean Shores, according to her son, Andrew Starr.

She was last heard from on March 20, 2021, by family “after an argument with a friend,” according to investigators.

“She was thought to be heading to her aunt’s house in the Lacey area, but has not been heard from or seen since,” Chehalis Tribal Police stated in a news release last week.
