Sunriver Man Located After Two-Day Search

UPDATE: The family of 71-year-old Steve Williams says he was feeling overwhelmed and mentally exhausted and, as a proud man, he couldn't find it within himself to ask for help. He biked to his family's travel trailer parked in storage and locked himself inside to sleep. They say they are happy and relieved Williams decided to come home, and he is remorseful and embarrassed by his behavior. The family thanked police and the public for helping during the two-day search.
