Search efforts put on hold Friday for body of Rachel Anderson

CLARKSTON, WA - Once again, search efforts for the body of Rachael Anderson are on hold.

Because of the stormy weather, crews had to pull out of the multi-agency search Friday. The wind and rain are causing too many waves making it difficult to see what's on the bottom of the Snake River.

Asotin County Sheriff's Detective Jackie Nichols said it would be very rewarding to be able to find something and be able to give answers to Rachael's loved ones.

"We're going to try and continue through the weekend while we have the resources available," said Nichols. "Then, down the road, if they become available we'll continue to search until we find her."

If the weather improves, the search will resume tomorrow (Saturday) morning. They're searching ten miles down stream from Red Wolf crossing bridge.

Anderson disappeared in 2010. Her estranged husband, 52-year-old Charles Capone, is scheduled to stand trial June 23rd in connection with her disappearance.

Asotin County Sheriff's deputies are asking boaters to stay clear of the search boats, and maintain a low wake when passing.
