Original Story:
EUGENE, Ore. -- The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help locating 50-year-old Oren Nichols, who was last seen at work in the Division Avenue area of Eugene on December 5th in the early morning hours.

It is unknown whether Nichols arrived home from work when he left, and he did not show up for work the next night, police said.

He was reported missing by a family member on December 6th when he did not show up for his birthday party, which had been planned in advance.

Nichols has since missed a medical appointment and is not answering his phone. He requires special care from his family due to medical issues, the report said.

Nichols is a white male standing 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighing approximately 120 pounds. He has black hair and green eyes.

Police say it is unusual for Oren to not show up for work or family events like the birthday party.

Lane County Sheriff’s Office asks anyone who has seen Oren since December 5th, or knows his whereabouts, to call (541) 682-4141.
