Hikers Discover Human Remains Near Yachats

On 07/25/2023, two hikers from out of the Lincoln County area located human remains in a dispersed campsite outside Yachats, OR. The hikers collected a dog from the campsite, returned to their vehicle, and reported the incident to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies responded to the area and were directed to the campsite, which was located approximately a half-mile into thick foliage, through rough terrain. The remains appeared to have been exposed to the environment for a prolonged period.

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Deputies and Detectives conducted a death investigation before the Lincoln County Search and Rescue Team removed the remains. The remains have been tentatively identified, but will undergo advanced testing to make a final determination. No identifying information is being released at this time. No suspicious circumstances have been determined and there is no concern for community safety. The dog from the campsite was retrieved by an Animal Services Deputy and remains at the Lincoln County Animal Shelter.
