EUGENE, Ore. -- Eugene Police are asking the public's help in finding a missing, endangered teenager, the department said.
On Saturday, June 3, Eugene Police responded to a report of a missing man, identified as 18-year-old Theodore Alvin Kudrna.
Kudrna was last seen by his mother walking toward Skinner Butte at 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 1, after she dropped him off in the area of Cheshire and Lamb Cottage. Police investigated and checked the area but were unable to locate him.
Police later received information that Kudrna was seen by friends in the late afternoon along the river bank between Lamb Cottage and the Valley River Footbridge along the bike path. These friends had reported to Kudrna's mother that he had been disoriented and apparently had fallen into the river. These witnesses had left him at this location along the river bank, police said.
