You might have heard about a shoe that washed up on the downtown waterfront … containing a foot. Above, that’s a photo of the shoe, which the county is distributing in hopes of finding out whose foot that was. Since it was just across the bay from here, we’re publishing the photo here too:
To assist in identifying a missing person, the King County Medical Examiner’s Office is releasing a photo of a shoe found along Seattle’s waterfront on May 6, 2014. The shoe was on a human foot, and they were turned over to the Medical Examiner’s Office by employees of the Port of Seattle’s police department.
The shoe is a New Balance athletic sneaker, men’s size 10-1/2, white with blue trim. This model of shoe was first available for sale in April 2008. A black, cotton Hanes brand sock was also on the foot. The sex, age, ancestry, and stature of the individual are not known.
Anyone who is aware of a missing person known to have worn this type of shoe is asked to call the King County Medical Examiner’s Office at 206-731-3232, ext. 1. Additionally, anyone aware of a missing person who has not been reported is asked to file a missing persons report with the appropriate local law enforcement agency.
