MILLICAN VALLEY, OR -- A 20-year-old man from Bend spent Friday night in the desert east of Bend after crashing his motorcycle. Tavion Linett was dirt-biking in the Millican Valley with a group of friends. He left about 10 o'clock Friday night to head home. When he didn't show up for work the next day Deschutes County Search and Rescue, Bend Police, Bend Fire and Rescue along with friends and family started searching the area he was last seen.  A friend found him about 9:30 Saturday morning on Forest Service Road 23 south of Highway 20. Due to his injuries he was flown to St. Charles Bend. It's believed he didn't negotiate a dog-leg curve and went off the road in the dark. Linett sustained serious injuries and remained laying in the brush all night until he was found. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
