Body Retrieved From Hellgate Canyon

HELLGATE CANYON, Ore. — The body of a Josephine County man has been found, almost two weeks after he was reported missing.

Josephine County Sheriff’s Deputies retrieved the body of Conrad Jordan, from the Hellgate Canyon, Monday morning. Jordan was reported missing on December 6th, in the Hellgate Canyon overlook area.

Sheriff’s Deputies were alerted to the location of the body, after private citizens spotted it while boating through the canyon Sunday afternoon. It was decided that a recovery attempt was too dangerous to attempt at that time because of the rugged terrain.
