**UPDATE**DCSO Seeking Information on a Missing Sunriver Area Man (Photo) - 03/02/19

Update Released by Sgt. William Bailey at 12:35pm on March 02, 2019

At approximatley 2:16pm on March 01, a snowmobile rider contacted Deshutes County 911 to report Jeremy Taylor had been located on Forest Service Road 40 near Wake Butte, west of Sunriver.  An Oregon Water Resouce SnowCat with one DCSO SAR member responded to the location and made contact with Jeremy and his dog Allie.  Jeremy and Allie were found to be in good condition, but hungry after being stuck in the snow for five days.  Jeremy and Allie were then transported to the intersection of FS Road 40 and FS Road 45 where he was reunited with family and friends.

Jeremy told investigators he had gone up FS Road 40 on Sunday, but became stuck in the snow.  He awoke Monday to even more snow and was unable to get his vehicle unstuck.  Jeremy had attempted to walk out on Monday, but the deep snow made it very difficult and he and Allie returned to his vehicle.  Jeremy stayed warm over the next four days by periodically starting his vehicle and used a few taco sauce packets he had as food.

The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office would like to thank everyone who assisted with the search for Jeremy and his dog Allie.
