Search for missing Gresham woman continues near Mt. Hood

'We are feeling hopeful, but we have to.'

MT. HOOD, Ore. (KOIN) -- Alison Bober knows that she can't venture to that corner in her mind. It's been over a week since her sister Diana, a counselor in Gresham, was last seen. She texted her mom, Carolyn, on that day, but hasn't been heard from since. 

"You always imagine the worst and you just try not to," Alison said. 

"We are feeling hopeful, but we have to. We can't do anything but continue to hold out hope."

Search crews with Mountain Wave and the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, as well as the 125th special tactics squadron with the Oregon Air National Guard, were out near the Hunchback trailhead looking for Alison's sister, an avid hiker. They used K-9 teams and a helicopter, but the search came up empty.

Crews have found some clues, though. On Aug. 30, the day after she last texted her mom, Diana's backpack was found. It had been turned into lost and found at the ranger's station. On Saturday, crews also found Diana's car. 

Now the family is hoping crews will find Diana, too.

"That's what we are concentrated on, to find someone who's injured and lost, but can be brought back to us," Alison said. 

Bober has red hair, hazel eyes, is approximately 5-feet-4-inches tall and 115 pounds. Anyone who knows of Bober’s whereabouts is encouraged to call 503.823.3333.
