Missing hunter

The Baker County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue team is looking for a hunter missing in the Wallowa Mountains.

Andrew Dean Dennis, 60, was known to be hunting deer in the East Eagle Creek area, and possibly in the Eagle Cap Wilderness near Crater Lake.

Dennis' vehicle was parked at the East Eagle trailhead. He was accompanied by a small Jack Russell terrier.

Dennis is a white male, 5-foot-5 and 170 pounds, with light brown hair, blue eyes, and a beard and mustache. He was known to be wearing a camouflage baseball cap and possibly a tan coat.

Dennis' niece, Candy Sturm, said he has hunted in the area frequently, and has also done guided tours.

"He knows that area like the back of his hand," Sturm said.

Sturm said Dennis' family is concerned that he has been hurt.

Anyone with information about Dennis' location should call the Sheriff's Office at 541-523-6415.
