PMR Searches for Missing Oxbow Park Fisherman
Friday, May 10, 2002
 
At the request of the Multnomah County Sheriff, Portland Mountain Rescue joined the ongoing search for a missing fisherman in the Sandy River Gorge near Gresham, Oregon.
 
The local man was reported missing Monday evening and volunteers have concentrated their search on the Sandy River between Oxbow Regional Park and the Columbia River, approximately 12 miles downstream from the Park.  On the fourth day of the search effort, PMR was summoned to cover the difficult mud slopes and thick brush of the Gorge.
 
The PMR team scoured two areas of steep terrain in Oxbow Park and swept 2 miles of the Sandy River from Interstate 84 to the Columbia River.  Unfortunately, as of the end of Friday, the fisherman remains missing.
