At about 9:50 p.m. on Sept. 3, deputies learned of a suspicious vehicle in the 1000 block of Umpqua Highway 99 outside of Drain. They said it was a silver 2004 Toyota Camry, and it was parked near the gate of a private property, but no one was around it. The vehicle was unlocked and there were several valuable items inside, deputies said.

Deputies contacted the registered owner of the vehicle and learned that Hannah Fox had been driving the car. She had last been seen Monday, Sept. 2, and had no ties to Douglas County, deputies said.

Authorities said shortly after 12:15 p.m. on Friday, a family member called reporting that Fox had been located. They said emergency services were dispatched and Fox was found alive, speaking with others on private timber lands less than a mile from where her vehicle had been left. Fox reportedly went for a hike and got lost.

Fox was in stable condition but was taken to an area hospital for evaluation, deputies said.
