Vehicle of missing central Oregon man found

Deschutes County, Ore. – A vehicle belonging to a missing La Pine man was found at a trailhead near the border between Deschutes and Klamath Counties.

According to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, a group of hunters in the Davis Lake area located Gary Humbard’s Ford Explorer in the Deschutes National Forest.

One of the hunters reported seeing a man, later confirmed to be Humbard, getting out of the vehicle with a backpack on September 2nd.
