UPDATE: Schmidt Family to Continue Search + How You Can Help

Heartbreaking news comes from the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday night. The search for Annie Schmidt, daughter of LDS musican Jon Schmidt, has been suspended after three days of intense searching.

In a press release reported by Fox 13 News, the office stated over 150 miles of terrain had been searched by volunteers, K9 units, and drones.

“No signs of Anna Schmidt have been found,” the release stated. Police do say the search will resume if credible leads surface.

Michelle Schmidt, Annie’s mother, told KOIN 6, a local Oregon news station, “I don’t think she’s still alive. I don’t think she’s survived. Honestly, that brings me comfort knowing she is with her Heavenly Father, that she’s not hurting, that she’s not suffering. But we do want to find her body.”

Annie went missing on Sunday, October 16, after traveling near the Columbia River Gorge for what her family thinks was supposed to be a short hike. The following tweet shows some of the drone footage from the search area.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Schmidt family at this time. The family has not released a statement since the suspension of the search.
