(CASCADE LOCKS, Ore.) - Deputies say Thursday afternoon, Hood River Sheriff's Office Investigators were notified of a body located on a popular hiking trail, west of Cascade Locks.

Hood River 911 received a call at 3:22 p.m. from a hiker on the Eagle Creek Trail. The hiker reported finding the body of an adult Caucasian female, about three miles from the trailhead.

Deputy Matt English, Public Information Officer with Hood River Emergency Services, says investigators reached the location late Thursday afternoon and discovered the body of 40-year old Maureen Dolores Gamache of Portland.

"A vehicle registered to Gamache was located in the parking lot, which is situated south of I-84, west of Cascade Locks."
