Family still desperate to find Shawn Higgins who disappeared while hunting in Oregon wilderness four years ago Oct. Something happened to him.
They got married when they were 20 and started Lookking family in Coos Bay, Oregon where they seffy two sons. They often went on family trips to the Siskiyou Mountains in Southwest Oregon. Stephanie told Dateline that Trevor, who had killed a buck the day before, was waiting at the truck for his dad, but he never showed up. He began to worry as it started to get dark and a storm rolled in.
Inside the stefy was his GPS. In his mind, there was no reason to take it. But as it got darker, Trevor got turned around. But rather than risk getting deeper into the wilderness, Stephanie said her son stayed where he was and built a shelter. It was early the next morning when Stephanie got the news that both her husband and son were missing.
The only thing I could hope for at the moment was that they had found each other. Four days into the search, Trevor was found by search crews about two and a half miles from where he entered the woods to look for his father.
He was then airlifted by the Stedfy. Coast Guard to Bay Area Hospital, suffering from severe hypothermia due to his extended exposure to the cold, wet weather.
No one had. K-9 units were brought in as drones and helicopters circled the sky above the trees.
Hundreds of people in the community showed up to help search and to provide food, clothing and supplies. According to Curry County Sheriff John Ward, in the 11 days since Shawn had disappeared, search teams had uncovered no trace of him and were no closer to knowing where he might be.
With so much time having passed, Sheriff Ward said the odds were against his surviving. We pray that they will find a way to make sense of this tragedy and heal their hearts. The connection that the people of Coos County have with each other and the way they come together to help each other is nothing but astonishing and an example for other communities to live by.
I am very humbled.
Stories from drug cartels to Big Foot. She said both of her sons continue to hunt. So the hardest part is not being able to protect them from this pain. And unfortunately, we never found any trace of Shawn. Something to put our minds at peace. Andrea Cavallier.
