If you drive along the Santiam Pass area this weekend, you'll probably see hundreds of deputies searching the river in the Detroit area. The officers from six different agencies are searching for missing Bend woman, Lori Blaylock. It's believed her husband dumped her body in the river near Idana last October. Don Thompson with the Marion County Sheriff's Office says officers have been searching the area for months: “Our deputies that work the area, assigned up there, I mean they’re honestly out there virtually daily, checking as they can, but the area is wet, it’s muddy, it has steep inclines, the waters’ high, the waters’ murky; the conditions are very poor. If they were to find her under those conditions, it probably would be because she washed up somewhere, not because she was spotted in the water.” This weekend's search is actually a training exercise, but the agencies decided to combine forces to train and potentially find Lori Blaylock.
