Hiker Assisted on the Tumalo State Park Trail.
On 06/02/19 at about 4:25 PM, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office received a call from two hikers, who were hiking on the river trail from Tumalo State Park. One of the hikers was feeling exhausted and did not know if she could make it back to the park without assistance.
The two hikers were later identified as Holly Davis and Christina Davenport of Bend.
Two deputies with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office and 18 Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue volunteers responded to the area to assist Davis.
The deputies assisted Davis as she continued down the trail, towards the park. When DCSO Search and Rescue arrived on scene, they evaluated Davis and assisted her into a wheeled litter. Davis was carried in the litter back to an awaiting vehicle at the park. Davis had no life threatening injuries and planned to seek further medical treatment on her own.
