    OR - John Daugherty, 24, Curry County, 15 April 1988


    Roommate reported him missing 2 weeks after he last saw him. He claimed that John went 'camping/hiking' alone in the Shasta Costa creek area between Curry, and Josephine counties, and that he had not had contact with him since. The area was searched thoroughly, and nothing was found. Several months later a crew timber cruising found a campsite torn apart by bears...

    The following entry is summarized from Curry County Sheriff's Office report dated Oct 16, 1989: Deputy responded on Oct 14, 1989 to a campsite where MP's property was found. Location of the site was recorded as T34s R11w, middle of southeast corner of section 36. Access to the site was from Snout Creek Road to the 110 spur road, from the 110 spur road a trail followed down a ridge to the site where the camping gear was found. The gear was strewn over an area of about 75 feet. It appeared that a bear had removed the contents from the pack in search of food. All the canned food items had been opened by bear, and majority of everything else including the pack had been damaged. The tent was not erected and the tent poles were still in the pack.

    Very very remote and rugged location. 40 miles as the crow flies but much farther on roads. 3 options on google maps ranging from 114 miles and 5 hrs 8 minutes to 174 miles and 4 hrs 25 minutes.distance.PNG
