BEND, OR -- The body of a 69-year-old Texas man, missing since mid-December, was found by a hiker, near Bessie Butte on Sunday. Lester Hyder disappeared while driving from Crescent to Prineville, launching a massive search effort by the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office. 

 

Hyder's pickup was found abandoned near Cabin Butte, off China Hat Road a few days after his December 13th disappearance. Investigators believe He walked away from his truck after it got stuck in deep snow during a storm and succumbed to the elements. 
 
His remains were found about a mile and a half from where his truck was discovered. There was no evidence of foul play.
