People love to play in Central Oregon. Unfortunately they also seem to get lost a lot; even if they're from here. This year has been a very busy year for Deschutes County Sheriff Search and Rescue. Many people come to Central Oregon to live their passion; whether it's horseback riding, skiing, snowshoeing or feeling the wind against your face on a thrilling ATV ride. Unfortunately the fun often turns to a crisis when someone gets hurt or lost: “And it's happened a lot this year. Search and Rescue crews have spent some weekends on more than one mission.” Sergeant Joe Deluca with Deschutes County has some advice: “Take experienced people with you.” He says there are parts of Deschutes that are so vast and desolate that even the long time locals familiar with the terrain can get lost.
