The remains of a Battle Ground woman who went missing nearly a month ago have been located in an abandoned outbuilding in Salmon Creek, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

Family and friends searching for Beverly Goheen, 33, discovered the woman’s body early Saturday afternoon and called 911, a CCSO bulletin said. The outbuilding was in the 2000 block of Northeast 138th Street, near Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center.

Goheen was last known to be at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center on the early morning of Tuesday, April 29, the CCSO said.

The death is under investigation by the Regional Major Crimes Unit comprised of Vancouver police and CCSO detectives.

The cause and manner of death are not currently known, but foul play is not suspected, the bulletin said. The remains have been released to the Clark County Medical Examiner.
