The Skamania County Sheriff’s Office is out with some additional information on that incident reported over the weekend up by the Ape Caves. At about 4:30 am on Monday morning, Heather Prouty, 19, of Woodland contacted Deputies at the Sheriff’s Substation in Cougar. Prouty says that she was driving eastbound Sunday night on the Forest Service 90 Road, when she got tired and pulled over to get some sleep. When she woke up, she says that her ankles and wrists were tied up, and her Jeep Cherokee was gone. Prouty says that she freed herself and flagged down a passing motorist, who took her to the Substation. She was taken to Southwest Washington Medical Center as a precaution and a rape exam; that exam showed that no sexual assault took place. Deputies also say that Prouty’s Jeep was found near where she had left it, with all of her belongings inside. Skamania County Deputies are asking anyone with information this case to call their office at 509-427-9490.
