Sheriff: No sign of missing teen in new search
BURNS, Ore. (AP) An Oregon sheriff says another search for a missing Oklahoma teen came up empty on Saturday.
Harney County Sheriff Dave Glerup said rescuers returned to Steens Mountain to search areas cleared by melting snow. They found no sign of 19-year-old Dustin Self of Piedmont, Okla., who told his family he wanted to test himself against the wilderness.
Self's pickup truck was found last month on a dirt track on Steens Mountain, where it had gotten stuck about 2 1/2 miles from a county road.
The sheriff says rescuers may search again in a few weeks once more snow melts, but they've checked everywhere they can reach right now.
Glerup says reported sightings of Self in Oregon, Washington and Maine haven't produced any leads to the teenager.
