Authorities began the search for Lori Blaylock body ended almost before it began Thursday.  Too much debris, plus extremely cold and rushing water worked against crews attempting to find even the slightest clue as to where her body could have moved to.  So they decided to call off the search for the winter.   In December, kayakers discovered what appeared to be a body wedged under some debris in the north Santaim River. Weather conditions prevented searchers from retrieving the body and continuous winter weather caused the river conditions to dislodge the body.  Thursday, searcher focused efforts in the area where the river meets the Detroit Reservoir, a location they determined to be the most likely place to find the body they believe to be Lori Blaylocks’. But adverse conditions again, forced the search to end. Coincidentally, Steven Blaylock was in court Thursday for a plea hearing from Deschutes County Jail via video link.  Blaylocks’ hearing was rescheduled for about two weeks from now.
