Olympia soccer player Austin Kelley missing on Salmon River in Idaho

austinkelleyOLYMPIA, WA— Friends, family, and the soccer community in greater Olympia continue to keep Austin Kelley in their thoughts and prayers after he was caught in a current of the Salmon River near Riggins, Idaho on Sunday. He has been missing since then.

Kelley is a graduate of Olympia High School and played college soccer at Saint Martin’s University in Lacey. His post-school soccer career includes playing for the Oly Town Artesians of the Western Indoor Soccer League.

Austin is married to Morgan Kelley and together they have a 3-month old daughter, Riann.

The community has been supporting the search for Austin on social media.

There will be a “Bring Austin Home” vigil / gathering at Olympia High School on Wednesday September 7 at 8 PM.

  1. Reblogged this on Oly Town Artesians and commented:
    We are shocked and devastated by the news about our friend and teammate Austin Kelley. Our thoughts and prayers are with Austin’s family and everyone involved. There is a fundraising site setup to help cover costs of the search and to support his wife, Morgan, and baby daughter. Click here and contribute if you can.


  2. My wife and I are sending out prayers for all involved with the search for Austin. We live in Idaho and Riggins is not far from us. Is there something we can do to help??
