UPDATE as of 9:30 p.m. The daughter of the woman contacted the Sheriff's Office and will be reunited with the remains later this week, Sheriff's spokeswoman Cindi West said.

INITIAL POST: Beatrice Elaine Park died at the age of 82 on May 18, 2004.

Her cremated remains were found by a King County Parks supervisor in a box July 22 as he was mowing near the Soos Creek Trail by Kent.

King County Sheriff's deputies are looking for whoever is missing the box of remains, found near Southeast 266th Street and 148th Avenue Southeast.

The container is in good condition, Sheriff's spokeswoman Cindi West said.

A tag identified the remains as Park's, and the crematory was Olympic Crematory Association in Centralia.

The deputies learned that the ashes were given to Park's husband, Hugh Park.

Further investigation determined that Hugh Park passed away in 2006.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 206-296-3311 with case number 13-174358.
