Investigators are looking for evidence that would lead them to a 27-year-old Kenmore woman whose disappearance was reported last month.
Investigators with the King County Sheriff’s Office excavated the backyard of a Kenmore house Friday in hopes of finding evidence that would lead them to a 27-year-old missing woman who lived there.
Jamie Haggard hasn’t contacted her family or used her cellphone or credit cards since June 8, said King County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. B.J. Myers. Her disappearance is classified as suspicious, he said.
Myers said a hole in the backyard intended for some type of water feature was filled in over the last month at the house on the 8200 block of Northeast 145th Street. Investigators brought a backhoe to dig and search for clues, including possible remains.
Since her family reported her missing June 17, authorities have been trying to track down Haggard’s friends and associates online, which Myers said usually leads to explanations of disappearances. Investigators haven’t had luck with that.

Around 7 p.m., the sheriff’s office said investigators had completed the search and did not find any remains.
