    There's a hot springs up there, likely to find him there. There are also myriad camping places both free and paid in that area. The road from Diamond lake to Roseburg is pretty curvy with a lot of log truck and rv traffic. If he did run off the road on a motorcycle it could prove troublesome to find. Hopefully he just got distracted by the hot springs or the beautiful countryside up there. Short of the occasional cougar or bear (or bigfoot if you believe in that) it is a very safe and nice area especially this time of year.
