"In the News" for Tuesday, January 27, 2015:

Hello, Friends!

Thanks so much for checking in on the blog this morning.  For those of you who have stumbled on this by chance, please go to my "In the News" Facebook page for the ongoing news links that come in throughout the day.  I do not duplicate what our local news station does, but I do share Associate Press stories and stories from state and regional newspapers and t.v. stations.  My intent with this page is to inform you about news that we might not otherwise hear about.

In the short time that I have been working on this news experiment, I have noticed some patterns.  It seems like some days have more road rage and traffic situations (not weather related); that there are a LOT more stabbings or attempted stabbings than shootings, and that there are a lot of folks trying to kill themselves around here. 

I have also become aware that there are a lot of missing people from Oregon that have never been found.  These two links have me interested in learning more about that: "Go Local PDX's list of 18 Oregon people who vanished in 2014" and "Oregon's Missing Persons Blog" Facebook page.                

Luckily, Eliana Perkings (age 13) from Seattle has been found safe.  She went missing on January 20th and was gone for nearly a week.

Collin Fergeson has also been found safe!

People Want Hannah Home:

Hannah Thomas-Garner has been missing since November.  Hannah left with Sylvia Davis.  Sylvia was found in December, and was with a man who was soon arrested.  Hannah has not been heard from since. Her car was found damaged in California.  The police consider her a run-away, but her parents do not.  Here is yesterday's article about "Ashland teen's schoolmates want her back home."
Here is the link to more information about the backstory.
Also, there is a Facebook page set up: "Bring Hannah Home Soon".

These go in descending order:

Tues. Jan 27th

I haven't really been on the scanner today, but there is something scary going on for a 14-year-old at home alone who hears somebody outside and has locked herself in the bathroom with her cell. Cop car just went screaming by our house going toward Sunriver, and the dispatcher mentioned a place near Vandervert Road. I just tuned in, am trying to piece things together.  (I never did hear any more about that incident.)

8:25 p.m. - During the past 5 minutes, cops have been dispatched to Railroad Ave. in La Pine. In another story, a 42-year-old male slipped on the ice and broke his ankle.

Mon. Jan 26th

10:59 a.m. - Sunriver - South Imnaha and Whistler ... somebody stole some street signs.

10:58 a.m.- La Pine - There is an upset elderly man waiting outside of Bi Mart for a deputy. His pickup was recently impounded, and he went to Central Oregon Towing to get his tools and stuff out of it and they won't let him do that.

10:06 a.m.- OSP heading to MP 98 on HWY 138 ... "might be something up". It is an accident. Vehicle is off the road and an ambulance is on scene. Single occupant in car, and that person is injured. Ambulance is blocking the eastbound lane.

9:52 a.m. - AirLink has arrived at the Crescent Fire Dept. to pick up a patient.

9:45 a.m.- La Pine - Welch Rd. Domestic. Two females were fighting. One called the police and drove off to leave the situation and meet the cops. Male called non-emergency to give more details. Cop is with the woman now.

9:41 a.m.- A black male came into someplace with a bleeding hand, acting very strange and asking if they were taking pictures of him. I didn't catch where this was.

9:34 a.m. - Somebody needs to land their helicopter in Kl. County. They are going to meet an ambulance in Crescent.

The Sunriver Citizen Patrol are busy doing their house checks this morning

9:18 a.m.- Road Rage near Lava Butte, MP 150, northbound. A white Ford Explorer was doing severe tailgating, aggressive driving and speeding. Their target was a blue pickup.

9:05 a.m. - Suspicious Behavior - I think this is in La Pine but I didn't catch the name of the street. 3 or 4 males are walking with a small female and a pink backpack is involved.

7:48 a.m. - Madras - Re: Drive-by shooting vehicle was a 4 door white Mercedes with tinted windows. It was last seen driving towards Warm Springs. The reservation has been notified. Unknown if there were any injuries. They are not sure how many people were in the car, but a shotgun was used. I guess that they put the COCC campus on lock-down.

7:40 - Bend - There is a two-car injury accident at Ferguson and SW 15th Avenue. Cops are blocking off the scene as they wait for the medics to arrive.

7:26 a.m. - Madras - A bit out of our scanner area, but there has been a drive-by shooting, Someone in a white car did the dirty deed. It doesn't sound as if anybody was injured.

Good morning! There are problems in the neighborhood already. At 6:35 a.m., a call came in about a dispute between a male and female on Twin Drive. The female has a gun. She left for awhile and now is back, sitting in her car in front of the house. I will keep a log of scanner goings ons in the comment section below. Stay safe out there today.
