On 5/26/20, around 4:40 p.m., Adventures With Purpose was shooting a YouTube video at the Jefferson Street Boat Ramp in Milwaukie. They were filming a dive team recovering a car from the Willamette River. The car was approximately 400-yards off shore in about 85-feet of water. Once the vehicle was recovered, they discovered human remains in the vehicle and immediately notified police.

The Clackamas County Medical Examiner came to the scene and took control of the remains. Any identification of the remains will be made at a later date/time by the Medical Examiner.

The vehicle is associated with a Portland Police missing person case from 2008, where the person was listed as missing and suicidal.

This is an on-going investigation and no further information is being released at this time.
