    WALDPORT, Ore. -- The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office continues to look for a woman who went missing after taking her dog for a walk.

    Margaret Mary Kohler, 53, left her home on February 19, at around noon to take her dog walking around Cape Perpetua, in the Siuslaw National Forest south of Yachats. On the evening of February 20, an acquaintance of Kohler called the Lincoln County Communications Center and reported that Kohler had not returned home. Deputies were notified to be on the look-out for Kohler around the area.

    On March 3, the USFS Law Enforcement found Kohler's 2003 maroon Toyota minivan on USFS Road 1051, located in the Siuslaw National Forest in the Cummins Ridge Trail area. Lincoln County Search and Reuse assisted the USFS and Lane County officials in an effort to find Kohler. A search team continues to conduct a ground search of the Cummins Ridge Trail area, which is on the Lane County side of the Siuslaw National Forest.

    Kohler is around 5'7, approximately 300 lbs., with collar length brown hair and blue eyes. Her dog is a light brown, five-year-old lab/collie mix with blue eyes, and is named "Rosco." If you have seen Kohler or know her exact whereabouts, contact LinCom at (541) 265-4231.

    YACHATS — A search continued Friday for a missing Waldport woman whose unoccupied minivan was found earlier in the week along a U.S. Forest Service road southeast of Cape Perpetua in the Siuslaw National Forest.

    The wo*man, Margaret Mary Kohler, 53, was reported missing on Feb. 20, one day after she apparently left her home to take her dog walking in the Cape Perpetua area, Lincoln County sheriff’s officials said.

    So there are two things that come to mind in this search for Margaret and her dog. First of all there is an active manhunt in Waldport, a few miles north of Cape Perpetua, what if he is hiding out in the park? Maybe she came upon him. Also I have hiked extensively in this state park. It is wonderful with old growth trees, but it slopes up from the ocean and has slick trails. They are moderate trails with a total of 1500 ft ascent. Steep in places. I think about a woman 300lbs may not have the reflexes to catch herself should she slip on these trails. I was always very careful while hiking there as the trails are very damp and slippery. Also, I couldn't find anywhere exactly where her car was found on 1051. If she hiked down and then went down to devil's churn. That is very precarious, slippery and should she have gone after her dog by the water, well that would be fatal for both of them. She could have gone down to the water, in that direction and the waves can get pretty strong, so again, if her dog went to swim or something and she tried to go after him......
