Update: That Highland Park/White Center helicopter search

May 17, 2012 at 11:34 pm | In Helicopter, West Seattle news | 6 Comments

helicopterwatch.png11:34 PM: We’re checking on reports of a helicopter in south Highland Park/north White Center, after multiple texts and calls. Nothing obvious from Seattle Police over the scanner, but that could mean it’s in the county jurisdiction, or that it’s not a law-enforcement helicopter at all.

11:51 PM: So far no info – and the helicopter has left the area. If we do find out anything tonight or tomorrow, we’ll add it here.

ADDED 9:45 AM FRIDAY: Sgt. Rodney Chinnick of the King County Sheriff’s Office tells us Guardian One was helping search for assault suspects. We don’t have the incident location yet but he says, “A 40 year old male was assaulted. He suffered a broken jaw and ankle”; 1300 block of SW Roxbury.

  2. I was wondering about this. It kept flying over my house, but seemed to be focused on the Delridge and Roxbury area. I didn’t notice any search lights though.
