Members and volunteers met at Walmart in Bend before heading out to search for any sign of Patrick Gillespie, 47, last seen leaving work in his silver Honda Accord.
Volunteers were searching the Deschutes River Woods area where he lives and in northeast Bend. They said they'd be searching into the night and meet again Saturday and Sunday at 8 a.m. in the southeast parking lot of the Bend Walmart.
"It seems to have come out of the blue, so all possibilities are still on the table," volunteer Jay Wells said. "We may be looking for someone who doesn't want to be found, and we may be looking for someone who is incapacitated or passed away or suffering from a physical or mental health issue -- really, every possibility is still being considered."
