North Bend Trail Warning

News sources including The Seattle Times have reported that police are searching for a North Bend man who is wanted in connection with the shooting death of his wife and daughter this past weekend.

The man, Peter Keller, is an avid hiker and authorities believe he might be holed up in the woods around North Bend.

Sheriff Steve Strachan told the Seattle Times:

"Keller was an avid hiker and would go off by himself six to eight hours every weekend. He was an avid outdoors person," Strachan said. "...we don't want to alarm people, but people should know that he's a person of interest in a double homicide."

Sheriff's deputies have tacked up posters on at trailheads in and around North Bend warning people to be on the lookout for Keller and that he might be armed and dangerous. Search-and-rescue crews are checking local trails for Keller as well.
