TILLAMOOK, Ore. (AP) — Tillamook County sheriff's officials say two missing campers who disappeared from an area campsite have been found dead due to a car accident.
Officials say deputies found the bodies of Justin Norton and Nick Santangelo Friday evening in the Tillamook State Forest off of State Highway 6.
Both men had been ejected from their SUV after it went off a narrow gravel road and rolled hundreds of feet down a steep hillside.
The SUV was found in an area with heavy brush and trees, making it hard to detect. Officials say the bodies will be recovered Saturday.
The two men were camping at the Cedar Creek Campground and had been missing since Tuesday.
They reportedly left the campground in the evening and were supposed to return within several hours.
