GRAYLAND - When the body of a 47-year-old woman washed ashore near Grayland last Friday morning, local and regional U.S. Coast Guard crews quickly rallied to try and find the man who was sailing with her - or any trace of the 25-foot sailboat they were on.

An Astoria-based helicopter crew diverted to the scene where beachcombers found the nude body of Teri Dascher, of Kingston, who had been identified by her name engraved on her dentures, said Petty Officer 1st Class Victoria Coloca of Coast Guard Group Astoria. Along with the Grays Harbor Sheriff's Department, the Coast Guard searched the immediate shoreline for any sign of debris or clues, but found nothing.
