Bellevue Woman Disappears from Ferry

Ferry at Night by Beth Freeman via our group pool [#]

A Bellevue woman who went sailing on the 10:55 p.m. ferry to Bainbridge turned up missing when the ferry docked, according to the AP. (#) Her van was left on the ferry, as were her purse and keys, which were found on an upper deck.

These kinds of stories always leave me with a shiver running down my spine. The Coast Guard has searched Puget Sound for her, and the State Patrol is investigating, but really, it sounds like the beginning of a paperback mystery novel, and I wonder if they’ll ever discover what happened to her. Perhaps she just walked off the ferry in Bainbridge, minus purse, keys and van, and hitched a ride to a nearby farm. Let’s hope for that ending, and nothing more sad or sinister.

    Every time I hear about things like this now, I can’t stop thinking about all of those feet washing ashore.

    Oh, that crossed my mind, for sure. That, and the inveitable ‘wonder if she pulled a Meredith Grey’ moment, too. I hope they find her…
