Details of Disappearance
On 07.12.10, Robert Bissell left his residence in Portland, OR to go camping near Rock Lakes above Estacada, OR. Robert Bissell's vehicle was located near Trailhead 700 and his camp was also located in that area; though, he hasn't been seen or heard from since he left his residence. He left his sleeping bag and other gear in his tent, taking only his fishing rod and tackle. Robert Bissell was reported missing after his brother visited Bissell's campsite on July 19 and July 24 without making contact. Authorities launched a search the following day. Deputies pursuing tips have spoken to campers who met Bissell in the Roaring River Wilderness Area, about 20 miles southeast of Estacada. Their contact with Mr. Bissell was at the beginning of his trip. Searchers believe Bissell set up camp, then went on a day hike to fish the Rock Lakes Basin.
