VERY SAD NEWS | The Piano Guys Co-Founder’s Daughter Found Dead in Oregon

The body of Annie Schmidt, daughter of The Piano Guys co-founder Jon Schmidt, has been found in the Oregon Mountains following a hiking accident

The body of Annie Schmidt, daughter of The Piano Guys co-founder Jon Schmidt, has been found in the Oregon Mountains - several weeks after she disappeared whilst hiking alone in the Columbia Gorge.

The 21 year old had been missing since October 16th when she set out on a solo hiking expedition in the Tooth Rock Trailhead area of Oregon.

Authorities believe she was on her way back to her car when she slipped and fell more than 100 feet over a cliff edge below Munra Point.

Annie's death has been ruled as accidental.

“You have lived this trial with us and we pray that this may bring a greater level of resolution and peace for all of us …” Jon has said via Facebook.

He has also thanked those who offered the family support during the period whilst his daughter was missing.
