SISTERS, OR -- After an extensive search, the body of a missing Hillsboro man was found on Mt. Washington, Saturday. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office received a call from Big Lake Youth Camp, early Friday morning, reporting one of their contractors was overdue from a solo hiking trip. They say 28-year-old Brian Robak sent photos from the summit to friends and family Thursday afternoon, but did not return as expected that evening.
Several agencies assisted in the search effort, including Corvallis Mountain Rescue and the Linn County Sheriff's Office. Robak’s body was found during an aerial search by a National Guard helicopter.
Investigators believe he fell a significant distance from near the top of the mountain.
