Avenue Lounge is hosting a benefit concert for a 19-year-old Vancouver woman who went missing in Skamania County last month.

Maureen "Anu" Kelly was last seen on the evening of June 9 leaving the Canyon Creek Campground in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, where she was staying with friends.

After searchers spent days combing the area around the campground, a steep and mountainous terrain, they found few traces of the woman. She left her campsite wearing only a fanny pack that contained a compass and knife.

Undersheriff Dave Cox said he has not received any credible information that would lead officers to Kelly's whereabouts.

The benefit starts 8 p.m. Wednesday at 9115 N.E. 117th Ave. in the Orchards area. All proceeds go to the "Bring Anu Kelly Home Fund."

Those interested can made a donation to the fund at any Columbia Credit Union branch.
