The search for Bohan "Bo" Lee, a 93-year-old man who was reported missing Saturday, has been suspended because search-and-rescue experts think Lee left the area in a vehicle, according to the Thurston County Sheriff's Office.
Detectives will continue to investigate in an effort to determine how and why he may have left the area. There is no indication of foul play.
Ground searchers, canine teams and air searches failed to locate Lee after he was last seen harvesting ferns in the Nisqually Valley area about noon Saturday.
Lee has previously walked away from family but returned, according to a news release. Family was not able to describe how long he had been missing in the previous instance. Lee is considered to be in good health and is an avid walker.
Anyone with information about where Lee might be is asked to call the Thurston County Sheriff's Office at 360-786-5500 or call the sheriff's office through Thurston County dispatch at 360-704-2740.
