The search for missing hunter Steve Litsey has been suspended at this time. Searchers from several counties in Oregon and California have spent 5 days combing the area where Litsey was last seen on Saturday, October 29th. They have located candy wrappers and water bottles but it is unknown if they are tied to Litsey.

Searchers wrapped up operations last night about 9 pm as snow was starting to fall in the area. Additional searches will be conducted as new information is developed and weather permitting.

Litsey is described as a white male, 5'7", 155 lbs, white hair and glasses and is reportedly wearing camouflage clothing. Anyone who has information or believes they have seen this subject should call the Sheriff's Office at 541-440-4471.
