  • Details of Disappearance
    Oscar Hintta, a retired custodian from Calumet, went deer hunting in the Kenton Area District of the Ottawa National Forest with a friend in November of 1989. The two hunters went off in different directions, Hintta was last seen going down an old logging road. When Hintta failed to show up a few hours later, his friend notified authorities.

    The search effort was hampered greatly by a freak weather pattern that moved into the area the very next day. When the search resumed, a Coast Guard helicopter and the MSP Canine Unit from Negaunee were called in. But the three-day search turned up nothing.
