Missing Pierce County man's body found

The body of a missing Pierce County man has been found, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office.

Young Hills, 22, has been missing since Oct. 15.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office received his body on Nov. 7.

No information has been released on exactly where, when his body was found in the Seattle area or the cause of death.

Pierce County Sheriff’s Detective Ed Troyer says the Seattle Police Department is handling the investigation and treating it as non-suspicious.

Hills was last seen at about 6 a.m. Oct. 15 when he drove away from his brother’s apartment on the University of Washington campus headed home to Parkland.

According to detectives, Hills called his ex-girlfriend in South Korea and told her he had taken a wrong turn and was lost, but didn’t say where he was.

His family reported him missing when he failed to come home and his friends used an app to locate his phone. A hit came from Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood around the time he left his brother.

There was no activity from Hills’ cell phone, debit card, bank or social media accounts while he was missing.
