Crews in Skamania County resumed search efforts Wednesday for a 60-year-old woman who went missing Saturday while looking for mushrooms.

Gail Wietrick of Trout Lake was last seen Saturday afternoon when she left Little Rock Creek Road about four miles northwest of Mill A in south-central Skamania County. The group she was with was unable to find her by 3 p.m. Sunday and notified the sheriff’s office, Undersheriff Dave Cox said.
