SISTERS, OR -- Deschutes County Search and Rescue teams were dispatched to Upper Three Creek Snow Park, 11 miles south of Sisters, to find a Bend man who had gotten lost. 

 

A woman called for help after her son, 23-year-old William Neason, failed to meet his friends for a snowmobile trip near Three Creek Lake, Thursday afternoon. Neason was able to text his friends and call 911 periodically, and told them he was walking in three-feet of snow, in tennis shoes. 
 
He was able to start a fire to keep his feet warm while dispatchers “pinged” his cell phone. Neason also had food and water.
 
Rescue snowmobiles finally found Neason after 10 p.m. about four miles from where he was supposed to meet his friends 10 hours earlier.
