An Oregon State Police spokesman said his agency and Kentucky State Police were trying to locate a Kentucky father and his adult son.
The father’s car was found abandoned along a highway near Oregon’s Mount Hood.
Lt. Gregg Hastings said the silver 2012 Kia Rio had been parked for about a week along Highway 35 near a trailhead in Oregon’s Hood River County when it was checked by state police last Friday.
Hastings said there was a significant amount of hiking equipment inside.
Police said family contacts advise that the car’s owner, John Kevin Wood, 59, of Bardstown, Kentucky, most likely was accompanied by his son, Jason Wood, 32, of Bardstown.
The men live together. Relatives and neighbors said they hadn’t seen them since mid-August.
Kentucky State Police listed the two as missing.
