A Warm Springs Tribal member is found after being lost for three days in the wilderness near Lion's Head on the reservation.


Dan Martinez, the Fire Chief with the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Fire Department says Max Mitchell, 49, became disoriented after tracking a deer Monday morning.


"Wednesday afternoon and we found him at up on the Seekseequa Lookout Tower, about 2.5 miles where he was last seen. Which was a good thing. He was cold, hungry, feeling kind of miserable because he was wet. We had about 4-5 inches of snow out in that region, with cold temperatures. He was healthy, but just hungry."


Martinez said Mitchell did almost everything right; but did not have matches with him to build a fire to stay warm.


About 100 volunteers joined in the effort to search for Mitchell. He was returned to his family Wednesday afternoon.
