Coast Guard Suspends Search For Man Missing On Oregon Coast


The Coast Guard has suspended the search for a missing man who reportedly fell off a cliff in Oswald West State Park on Sunday, September 10th. The search was suspended after search efforts by a helicopter crew, a life boat crew and local responders were unsuccessful.
 
Coast Guard watch standers received a report that the 51-year-old British Columbia, Canada, resident was witnessed, by his wife, to have fallen off an 800-foot cliff near the Devil’s Cauldron. Coast Guard air and sea response crews coordinated efforts with ground crews from the Oregon State Police and Manzanita Fire Department.
 
Search crews found one of the man’s shoes and his backpack floating in the ocean below where he had reportedly fallen. The search was conducted until being suspended after sunset. The search could continue if more information about the case becomes available.
