Ore. authorities search for missing man

BEND, Ore. (AP) — Authorities are searching for an 18-year-old man who was reported missing from a wilderness program in a remote area of Lake County in central Oregon.

State Police Lt. Gregg Hastings says Kevin Mulert, from Deerfield, Illinois, was last seen Wednesday morning at about 4:30 a.m. He was reported missing from the therapeutic nature camp at about 8 a.m.

The camp is about six miles south of Frederick Butte, which is about 60 miles southeast of Bend.

Hastings declined to name the wilderness program at the request of program officials.

He says Mulert was not wearing shoes, wasn't dressed for the weather and was unfamiliar with the remote area.

The Lake County sheriff's office is coordinating a search for him.
