Search for man missing since April targets dense timber near where car found abandoned

If you know anything about Daniel Oberg's whereabouts, contact Lane County Sheriff's Office at 541-682-4141.

MARCOLA, Ore. - Search and rescue crews scoured a previously inaccessible stand of private timber north of town in the search for a man reported missing in April 2017.

Daniel Oberg's vehicle was found abandoned in the Marcola area. The new search area is heavily wooded and only became accessible this fall.

On Saturday, 29 volunteers and staff from the Lane and Linn county sheriff's offices combed the area looking for clues with the help of K9 teams.

The search continued Sunday.

"By the end of the day, no new clues had been found indicating where Oberg may have gone," the Lane County Sheriff's Office said. "Over the past months detectives from the Lane County Sheriff’s Office have conducted multiple interviews trying to locate Oberg, who has not been seen by friends or family for over 7 months now. This search was one of many since April 2017 conducted by Search and Rescue crews."

Oberg is 28 years old white male, 6-feet tall and 160 pounds with medium length brown hair and a short beard, which may be grown out by now.

He went camping the weekend of April 22. His family reported him missing April 25 when he didn't come home.

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who has seen Oberg to call (541) 682-4141.
