BEND, OR -- A Bend-area woman is recovering from minor injuries after a Monday-night abduction. According to The Sheriff’s Office, 47-year-old Gregory Miller waited for the victim in her barn off Bull Springs Road, knowing she would check on her animals. When she came in at about 11 p.m., he allegedly tried to bind her hands and used a deadly weapon to hold her against her will.


She eventually escaped and the Deschutes County SWAT team descended on the large property. During the extensive search for Miller, deputies found his vehicle destroyed by fire and still smoldering. Members of the SWAT team, Deschutes County Deputies and K9 resources tracked Miller through the night, searching over nearly a mile of what's described as "difficult" terrain. 
He was later found near the home and taken to the hospital with a self-inflicted, non-life threatening injury. Investigators believe this was not a random act and say the suspect and victim knew each other. 
Miller faces a long list of charges and is being held on $375,000 bail.
