Update- 3/23/2023 3:30pm

Today members of the Clark County Sheriff's Office and Vancouver Police Department met to further discuss the investigation into the deaths of Meshay Melendez and Layla Stewart.

On 3/22/2023, around 9:40 am, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office responded to a suspicious circumstance call off SE Sunset View Road in Washougal, WA. A passerby had reported that there appeared to be two “life-sized mannequins” just off the roadway down an embankment in some thick brush. 

A CCSO deputy responded to investigate and discovered two deceased persons.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit (MCU) responded and is investigating. They are currently processing the area as a crime scene.

It is believed that they may be related to the Vancouver Police Department's missing persons, Meshay Melendez and Layla Stewart.

This post will be updated as more information becomes available.
