COURTESY PHOTO: MCSO - Daniel Tyrone Graham Around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Graham realized he had become lost near the Lewis and Clark State Recreation Area. Both Multnomah County Sheriff's deputies and the Gresham Police Department drone unit began searching for the man. Based on landmarks, the team was able to pinpoint his location, and dispatchers told Graham to stay in place. The Green Hornets, a team of MCSO deputies trained in quick trail deployments, hiked to the location, but could not find any signs of Graham.

There has been no further communication between Graham and emergency responders.

The Green Hornets searched for 12 hours in the steep terrain, which has no official trails. In the afternoon, temperatures in the area reached nearly 100 degrees. At 11 p.m. Thursday the search was suspended with no signs of Graham.

Friday morning, July 29, the search continued with both Clackamas Search and Rescue and MCSO sheriff's deputies on ATVs in the field. Mountain Wave Emergency Communications coordinated radio communications. Those efforts were also called off Friday evening.

Other than his original 911 call, there have been no missing persons reports filed on his behalf.

If anyone has information about Graham or knows his whereabouts, call the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office at 503-988-7300.
