PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Investigators hope hikers taking advantage of a warm weekend around Mount Hood will turn up clues to the disappearance of two Kentucky men who appear to have come to Oregon to camp in the woods but didn’t hit the trail.

State Police said Friday the two went to a ranger station Sept. 2 and said they were interested in hiking, perhaps on the Pacific Crest Trail.

But authorities found their car abandoned along a highway with so much camping gear - such as sleeping bags and a stove - that it was hard to conclude they’d left it behind to go out for several days.

Police say 59-year-old John Kevin Wood and his 32-year-old son, Jason Wood of Bardstown haven’t been in touch with family or neighbors since mid-August.
