Corvallis man found dead at Farewell Bend

Oregon State Police, with the assistance of Malheur County Sheriff's Office, located and recovered a deceased 81-year old Corvallis man who died Tuesday while fishing along the Snake River east of Farewell Bend State Recreation Area. 

Alan Winthrop Ede was found shortly before midnight Tuesday when an OSP trooper on foot spotted Ede’s body partially submerged along the rocky shore line about a mile west of where the man’s car was located. Malheur County Search and Rescue personnel helped retrieve the body. 

Troopers were dispatched shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday for a welfare check when Ede failed to return to his Farewell Bend State Recreation Area campsite after going fishing earlier in the day. Ede’s wife contacted the park host who then called OSP with information the man probably drove to the Interstate 84 interchange at exit 356 to fish in the Snake River. 

Troopers later found Ede’s car parked on the interchange’s westbound on ramp where access to the Snake River is possible by walking down a steep embankment. Four OSP officers and Malheur County Search and Rescue personnel started searching the area along the riverbank. 

Police said a preliminary investigation indicates Ede may have slipped or lost his balance on a large rock. One of his legs was wedged between rocks and he fell into the water where it is suspected he drowned.
