Area where Michael Bryson was last seen in the early morning hours of August 5, 2020. The site is east of Cottage Grove/Dorena.

Bryson is described as 6-ft. 2-in. tall, and weighing 180 lbs. He has short brown hair and hazel eyes.

When he disappeared from the Brice Creek Road area near Lund Park and Hobo Camp campgrounds, he was wearing a white t-shirt, tan shorts, and white crocs with multicolored splotches.  He may also be wearing a brown corduroy baseball cap.

Authorities say Bryson left behind his camping equipment and gear, and his phone was also powered off for several days after his disappearance. Search dogs have been used in trying to find him, but nothing has turned up yet as to his whereabouts.
