Human remains found during search for missing Vancouver woman

By , Columbian staff reporter

Law enforcement found human remains during a recent search for a Vancouver woman who has been missing since 2018.

The remains are being examined by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office and have not yet been identified, according to the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office.

The Skamania County Sheriff’s Office and Skamania County Search and Rescue was searching for Ashanti Conde, 27, who was last seen in February 2018.

The remains were found during one of several searches in the area where the remains of a man Conde was believed to be with were found the month after the pair disappeared, according to Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp.

The body of Michael Conley, 51, was found March 9, 2018, near a dirt road above the snow line northeast of Dougan Falls. A car was abandoned more than a mile away — stuck in deep snow and mud. There were no signs of foul play in Conley’s death, according to a police news release.

Vancouver police said Conde’s case has remained active since she went missing.
