Jacob Hilkin was last seen on January 23rd, leaving the Tulalip Casino at 10:20 in the morning. Although he’s been missing for over two months,
Snohomish County Investigators held off on conducting the search because of lack of foul play. He left the casino after telling friends he was going to catch a bus to head home, but footage from the local buses confirm that he never made it that far.
According to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s office, “Hilkin was last seen by himself around 10 a.m. Tuesday, January 23 walking South on 27th Ave NE
in Tulalip. Jacob has brown hair, is 5’11” tall, weighs 160 lbs. and always wears his eyeglasses.”
The search began at 8 am, and covered from just south of 88th St NE to Marine View Drive and west of Interstate 5 to 21st Drive NE in Tulalip. The
Search and Rescue team that scoured that 700 acre area included Snohomish County employees and about one hundred Search and Rescue volunteers.
