35-year-old Justin Norton and 53-year-old Nicholas Santangelo left their campsite at the Cedar Creek Campground late Monday night to look for some lost pets, and never returned. They were last seen in a 1998 blue Ford Explorer.
Searchers found their bodies around 8:15 Friday night. The Explorer went off a gravel road off Highway 6 in the Tillamook State Forest, rolling hundreds of feet down a steep hillside, throwing the two men from the car.
The car landed in heavy growth which made it hard for searchers to find. The bodies were recovered Saturday morning.
