On Sunday, February 24, 1980, a father and son were panning for gold in the Chelatchie Prairie area of north Clark County, Washington when they made a sad discovery.

Investigators found the partial skeletal remains of an unidentified teenage girl in a "dumping area near Fly Creek."  Another source described the location as "a shallow grave... near Canyon Creek Road."
