MILWAUKIE, Ore. (KOIN 6) — The gold Pontiac belonging to a missing 31-year-old man from Milwaukie has been located near Frog Lake on Mt. Hood.

The family of Gerren Kirk, who was expected to return Saturday from a camping trip, said he carried gear for cold weather with him.

A Wasco County Sheriff’s Office deputy located Kirk’s vehicle near the trail head Monday night.

The family said there is no indication he was distraught, depressed or acting unusually when he departed Wednesday.

Laura Kirk said she is concerned for her brother as temperatures dipped below freezing Tuesday night.

“We’re sending out positive energy to him,” she said.
