CAMAS, Wash. (KOIN) — The body of missing Camas mom Alisha McRay was found Friday in Lacamas Creek, Camas police said.

Alisha McRay’s body was found in the creek south of the Lacamas Lake dam in an area commonly known as the “Potholes.” According to police, the search and rescue team had to shut off water at the dam to allow rescuers to retrieve the body.

Her family identified her once rescue crews brought the body to shore.

McRay was reported missing after she dropped off her kids at school on Wednesday, but she didn’t show up to pick one of them up in the afternoon, Camas Police Dept. said.

Her family became concerned about her and reported her missing later that evening.

Police initiated a search for McRay and found her car parked at a public Lacamas Park parking lot off of NE Everett Street. A helicopter was used to search for her in the area, but police said they didn’t find any sign of her as of Thursday afternoon.

Family members tell police this is extremely out of character for her.

Police do not suspect foul-play.
