Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Steve Litsey was last seen alive on October 29, 2011, after splitting up from his hunting partner near Roseburg, Oregon, about 125 miles north of the California border. He was reported missing by his hunting partner on Sunday, October 30, 2011.
His friend told the Sheriff's Office that he and Litsey walked into the Twin Lakes area on Saturday, October 29, 2011 and then separated at about 0730 hours, agreeing to meet back there later in the day. Litsey never showed up. Steve Litsey left his cell phone and GPS device in a camper. Searchers have not found his backpack, his gun or any other trace of him.
Authorities halted their search November 3 after 7 inches of snow had fallen in the area. The sub-freezing temperatures and heavy snows would have made survival extremely difficult.
Litsey lived in Paradise, California at the time.
