Jackson County Assisting in Search for Missing Douglas County Woman

Search crews continue their efforts looking for the missing Roseburg woman who disappeared on Saturday, September 25, 2021, from Lemolo Forebay #2 near Toketee.

43-year-old Branda Hoyle was on an outing with family members when she walked away from the group. When she didn’t return, family became concerned and began looking for her. They later called 9-1-1 when they hadn’t located her.

Search efforts have been underway since Saturday without any new information. 

“As hunters and outdoor enthusiasts are in the area this weekend, be aware that Branda is still missing and report any information that may be helpful to searchers,” remarked Lt. Brad O’Dell. “Something as simple as a piece of clothing or a cellphone can help solve this case.”

Branda is described as 5’7” 200 lbs with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black tank top, blue jeans and brown “Ugg style” boots. Branda is believed to be suffering from a mental health crisis and may be disoriented. 

”With the rains we’ve recently experienced and the colder conditions at night coupled with her lack of preparedness for being out for this period of time make us extremely concerned for her welfare.”
