Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue teams were out in force, including K-9, horseback, drone, fixed wing airplane and helicopter units, looking for Harold Marcrum, 26, a 6’ tall white male weighing between 180-200 lbs. with blue eyes and blonde hair. He was described as missing and endangered in a county Sheriff’s Office news release.

Search and Rescue teams have searched both sides of Bear Creek along the greenway from Ashland into Talent, Phoenix and Medford, and will broaden the search area as needed, according to the release.

Marcrum, originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has lived in Ashland since 2017. He was last seen wearing a black shirt with black shoes. On May 30 he told his brother he was going for a walk on the Greenway from South Valley View Road to downtown Ashland. He left his wallet and cell phone behind but took his laptop.
