Search teams are continuing their efforts to find a Roseburg woman who disappeared last Saturday from Lemolo Forebay # 2 near Toketee.
Sergeant Brad O’Dell said Branda Hoyle, 43, was out with family members when she walked away from the group. O’Dell said she didn’t come back, the family got worried and started looking for you. They later called 911 when they had not located her.
Research efforts have been underway since Saturday without any new information.
O’Dell said with hunters and outdoor enthusiasts being in the area this weekend, they should be aware that Hoyle is still missing and report any information that may be of help to researchers. He said something as simple as an item of clothing or a cell phone could help solve the case.
Hoyle is described as 5 feet 7 inches tall with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black tank top, blue jeans and brown “Ugg style” boots. Hoyle is said to be suffering from a mental health crisis and could be disoriented.
O’Dell said “With the rains we have received recently and the colder conditions at night, coupled with his unpreparedness to be away during this time, we are extremely concerned for his well-being.”
The DCSO was assisted by search and rescue personnel from Jackson and Lane counties, as well as Oregon State Police and the Pacific Corp.
