BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Sheriff's Search and Rescue teams were put on standby or deployed for five different incidents Saturday.  At 10 am, a 3-year old was reported missing, but was found by Bend Police in the family's garage.  Then, just after 2 pm, another 3-year old wandered from a Deschutes River Woods home.  Oregon State Police found that child about 45 minutes later, walking near railroad tracks a half mile away.  
 
Less than an hour later, crews responded to Crane Prairie Reservoir when a hunter was unable to swim to shore after trying to retrieve a goose.  He was found clinging to a tree in the water and was pulled to safety by rescuers using private boats available at the scene.  He was taken to St. Charles Bend and treated for hypothermia.
 
Just before 6 pm, DCSO deputies found an 81-year old man who had been reported missing from a home east of Bend.  He was disoriented and confused, but otherwise fine.  
Local SAR teams also responded to rural Douglas County to assist in the search of a missing deer hunter.
