by a hit-and-run driver 

Anthony "Tony" White Jr. of Svensen was killed April 9, 2005, by a hit-and-run driver. The 21-year-old man was struck while walking home from a friend's home on Old Highway 30 about one-tenth mile from Svensen Market Road in the rural community of Svensen, east of Astoria. Another motorist found his body in the road and called authorities at 1:12 a.m.

Hall was last seen around 2 p.m. Sept. 30, 1983, walking on Main Street in Warrenton, Oregon. She was last seen at the Mini-Mart by a boy who gave her a ride from the high school. She told the boy she was going to buy a soft drink and walk the half-mile to Warrenton Grade School, where she helped her aunt, a third-grade teacher. She never showed.

Police from several agencies found no sign of the teen, despite exhaustive searches and interviews, including following up hunches from psychics. Authorities suspected foul play.

Hall was a member of an Explorer post sponsored by the Sheriff’s  Office and was elected its president the night before her disappearance.

When last seen, she was wearing a green hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, blue jacket and white and maroon sneakers. She was carrying a blue and white backpack and a brown purse.  At the time, she was 5-foot-6, weighed 120 pounds and had brown hair. Her ears are pierced.
