ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) - A hunter missing the past week in the Cascade Range of southwestern Oregon has been found dead.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says members of the county’s mountain rescue unit found the body of 20-year-old Travis “TJ” Anderson of Myrtle Creek on Wednesday. It appeared he had fallen down a waterfall on Squaw Creek in the Rogue-Umpqua Divide country about 15 miles east of Tiller.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Dwes Hutson says the waterfall is about a mile from where a National Guard helicopter had located a fire and the hunter’s hat earlier this week.

Authorities said Anderson had called his father on a radio last Thursday saying he was at a waterfall, could not continue, and had blisters making it difficult to walk.
