BEND, OR -- The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a one-year-old child, reported missing southeast of Bend. They’re asking residents near Sholes Road and Tekampe Road to search their property for the boy. He has blonde hair, brown eyes and may have been wearing a green onesie with a baby blue blanket. He was last seen near a barbed wire fence.


If you see Bradley Michael Thomas, you're asked to call 911, immediately. All other inquiries or information should be made to non-emergency dispatch at 541-693-6911. Officials say searchers are not needed at this time, and they urge the public to stay out of the area to allow Search and Rescue teams to work. 


The Forest Service has postponed Thursday's prescribed burn planned for south of the Woodside Ranch subdivision, due to the search effort.
