FOREST GROVE, Ore. (AP) -- Searchers in Washington County are looking for a hunter reported missing overnight.

KGW-TV (http://bit.ly/nrgEYf) reports the man, who was not immediately identified, called his family during the day Sunday, and the family notified authorities when he didn't return that evening.

Sgt. Dave Thompson of the sheriff's department says his vehicle was found in a parking spot that hunters use. The search is in the area of Hagg Lake southwest of Forest Grove.
