Missing Winston man found dead in Coos County Friday

A Winston man who was reported missing on Sunday was found dead Friday in a steep and brushy area of Coos County northeast of Coos Bay.
Coos County Sheriff's deputies said they found the body of Lindsey E. White,83,in a canyon in the Blue Ridge area,approximately 400 yards from where his 1992 Blue Regal was discovered on Thursday. Deputies said it appears White,who was not wearing any winter clothing,died of hypothermia.
White's car apparently became stuck while turning around in the Blue Ridge area. After making several attempts to free the car,White appears to have left it and started to walk down a ravine area adjacent to his car.
White was reported missing by his family on Sunday when he did not return home after driving to a store in Winston. The Winston Police Department said White had become increasingly disoriented in the past several weeks and had experienced problems being lost.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office,as well as Search and Rescue from both Coos and Douglas counties had been looking for White over the past five days.
