BEND, OR -- A naked man was found near the Lava Lands Visitor Center, Thursday night, showing signs of hypothermia. Deschutes County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the center’s entrance on Highway 97, south of Bend, at about 10:15 p.m., after a driver reported being approached by the man asking for help to jumpstart a car. 


Deputies say 27-year-old Adam Gilliam had extensive injuries consistent with walking through the woods without clothes. Sunriver medics took the John Day man to the hospital where he told authorities he’d walked naked from the visitor center to Benham Falls and back, covering over 10 miles in 20-degree weather. 


Drugs are believed to have been a factor in his actions.
