UPDATE (Friday, Oct. 22, 9 p.m.) -- SUBJECT LOCATED, TRANSPORTED TO HOSPITAL
Earlier this evening (Friday, Oct. 22), two Estacada residents located Carol Ann Hoy's purse off a logging road. They notified Clackamas County Search & Rescue (CSAR) personnel, who were part of an extensive larger search effort for the missing woman; CSAR responded to the area and located Hoy nearby.
Hoy was transported to a local hospital for treatment of hypothermia.
The two Estacada residents had been hiking in the area looking for Hoy after hearing the news that she was missing. Their find helped bring closure to a large-scale search effort that included personnel from:
- Clackamas County Search & Rescue (CSAR) -- including trail runners, ground searchers, K9 teams, and drone pilots
- Pacific Northwest Search & Rescue
- Mountain Wave Emergency Communications
- Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Dive Rescue Team -- which checked creeks in the area
- Estacada Fire
- American Medical Response
Thank you to all the search crews who participated in the effort, and to all those who helped spread the word.
