Search Intensifies For Missing Professor
Searchers on the ground and in the air searched the Cascade Mountain foothills Wednesday for a University of Oregon professor missing after telling friends he was going on a day hike Sunday.
Hikers reported seeing him on a trail Sunday afternoon but he is unreported since.
The Lane County sheriff's office is leading the search, and deputies from neighboring Benton County were to join the effort Wednesday. The Oregon wing of the Civil Air Patrol sent up a search plane and Deschutes County sent deputies with horses.
An Oregon National Guard helicopter joined the effort on Tuesday and a second arrived on Wednesday.

It appears that the professor tried to go much farther on his hike than usual because his wife didn't come with him this week.
The freezing level will be dropping lower on Thursday night and rain is coming after that. I hope and pray that they find him safe soon.
Having the Blackhawk's infrared capabilities in use there may help.
