Group reported overdue after snow drive found safe


PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A group of five people who were reported overdue Sunday night after they didn’t return from a snow trip in the mountains have been found safe, according to the Lane County Sheriff’s Office.

Search and Rescue teams found the group in the Box Canyon shortly before 2 p.m. All five people were found in good health, officials say.

Deputies were searching for 37-year-old Jobee Baumgardner, 33-year-old Renell Baumgardner, their two sons and a young family friend on Monday after they were supposedly traveling to HooDoo or Salt Creeks Fall Sno Park on Sunday. They did not make it back on Sunday night, despite expecting to return around 8 p.m.

LCSO thanks those who helped spread the word during the search.
