Officers searched from Enumclaw to Buckley but found nothing.
INVOLUNTARY COMMIT: A woman was taken to to the Renton hospital the afternoon of April 18 as an “involuntary commit.” Hospital staff was instructed to contact Enumclaw authorities when the woman was ready to be released, so officers could take her into custody on an Enumclaw Municipal Court warrant.
