Searchers on lookout for missing man

Linn County deputies and search crews continued looking Tuesday for a man reported missing in the Upper Calapooia area.

Deputies located the vehicle of Mark J. Hardin, 49, of Sweet Home in the area, where Hardin likes to hike, said Capt. Jeff Cone of the Sheriff’s Office.

Hardin didn’t take much with him, Cone said. Deputies called his cell phone, but it just rolled over to voicemail.

Deputies were notified of the disappearance at 1:46 p.m. on Sunday. They have searched for him in that area and at other places where he could be.

Anyone with information should contact Linn County Sheriff’s Office at (541)367-3911.
