Missing Bend Man Found Alive In Drain

BEND, OR -- A Bend man reported missing on Christmas Day was found alive Wednesday afternoon, trapped in a dry well several blocks from his home.

He reportedly left his house Monday to get coffee but never returned. A community member called 911 just after 3 p.m. Wednesday after they found the man six feet below street level in the parking lot of Norton Street Storage, which is a gated site.

Bend Police and firefighters responded and pulled him out of the drain. He was taken to the hospital for evaluation, but in good condition. Bend PD says investigators are reviewing surveillance footage to ensure "he was not the victim of a crime and to try and figure out how he ended up in there."
