TILLAMOOK, Ore. — Search and rescue crews combed the woods and logging roads in the Tillamook State Forest for two missing campers from Portland.
35-year-old Justin Norton and Nicholas Santangelo, who’s 53, left their camp site near Jordan Creek Road off of Highway 6 late Monday night. A woman camping with them called for help when they didn’t return the next morning.
“There is a lot of road out here. They could be stuck somewhere. We’ll start hitting all the main forest roads in the area and there is quite o few out there”.
The men were driving a 1998 green Ford Explorer with Oregon plates. The families of both men have joined in the search. More than two dozen searchers on the ground have been joined by a National Guard chopper in the air.
