He's cold, wet and tired, but a man who disappeared while picking mushrooms in the forest near Molalla was found safe Thursday morning.
A log truck driver came upon Boris Bondarchuk on the Molalla Forest Road near milepost 8 around 9 a.m. He took Bondarchuk to the main Molalla Fire Station, where paramedics examined him. He's in good condition.
Bondarchuk went looking for mushrooms near South Family Camp Road on Monday, and he was later reported missing.
Clackamas County deputies said Bondarchuk disappeared in a "very rugged area" comprised of dense wooded cover, steep mountain terrain and rivers that made the search and rescue mission difficult.
Sgt. Steve Dangler with the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office said up to 80 people from six agencies were involved in the search operation Wednesday morning.
They planned to continue the search Thursday, but Bondarchuk, 53, was found safe.
