ALBANY, Ore. (AP) — Authorities in Linn County say they’re at the end of more than a week of searching for a 49-year-old man from Sweet Home.

The Albany Democrat-Herald (http://bit.ly/qeiV5i) reports that Mark Hardin was reported missing Aug. 7 after going to visit a favorite hiking and photography spot along the upper Calapooia River near Holley.

After putting in 2,000 hours, searchers said Sunday they had found his car on a logging road and a water bottle, lighter and cigarette butts they believed were his but no other leads.
