LA GRANDE, Ore. — Oregon State Police (OSP) is searching for an Oregon truck driver who disappeared en route to a delivery in eastern Oregon. He was last seen on Tuesday, with GPS data tracking him until Thursday.

According to OSP, 22-year-old Jacob Cartwright was headed southeast to a delivery that was due at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 25 in the town of Nyssa in eastern Oregon, near the Idaho border.

Cartwright and his truck were last seen on April 24 around 5:30 p.m., near Pendleton. Inexplicably, GPS data shows Cartwright's truck southwest of La Grande on April 26 around noon, on Highway 244 near MacIntyre Road—putting him in the opposite direction of his Nyssa destination.

OSP aircraft and ground rescue personnel have been searching the area, which they say is very remote, expansive, and heavily wooded with rough terrain.

Cartwright's truck is a green 2005 Kenworth semi with the company name "Little Tree Transportation," pulling a white trailer. The truck has Oregon plates with the number YAIN63.

Anyone with information regarding Cartwright or his truck should contact the Union County Sheriff's Office at 541-963-1017, or contact OSP at *OSP.
