The car of a man who was reported missing from the Portland metro area was found in Manzanita, according to a statement from the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO).
TCSO said Paul Jensen, last seen on Thursday, Jan. 24, has ties to northern Tillamook County. The Sheriff’s Office search and rescue team is reportedly working closely with the Manzanita Police Department in an effort to locate the missing man as soon as possible.
Jensen was driving a silver Toyota Tacoma. Posts on social media indicated that 51-year-old Jensen’s vehicle was found at the beach house of a friend, who said Jensen planned to hike Oswald Park towards Cape Falcon and would return by afternoon on Friday, Jan. 25.
Search party efforts that followed the discovery of Jensen’s vehicle were reportedly fruitless. TCSO Lt. Jim Horton confirmed on Tuesday, Jan.29, that the search for Jensen was ongoing.
Anyone with information about Jensen’s whereabouts should contact Marilynn or Alan Jensen at 503-887-0206.
