COOS BAY, Ore. – Curry County Sheriff John Ward announced Tuesday evening that the ground search for Shawn Higgins has been suspended.
Ward said the search was called off due to no signs, clues or indication of his location in the rugged search terrain.
Shawn Higgins and his son Trevor both went missing while hunting in the Shasta Costa drainage in the Bear Camp area on Friday, October 14.
Search crews found Trevor Higgins four days into the search about two and a half miles from where he entered the woods.
A Coast Guard helicopter air lifted Trevor Higgins to Bay Area Hospital.
Meanwhile, the search for Shawn Higgins continued in wet, winding and cold weather.
Local businesses donated food clothing and supplies to the work crews and volunteers cooked meals so they could continue their efforts.
The overhead search for Shawn was called off Sunday evening.
Several of Shawn Higgins’ friends, co-workers and acquaintances when back in the search area Monday, but didn’t find any clues as to where he could be.
Ward says their hearts go out to the family, friends and community members who knew Shawn Higgins.
