Search is on for missing man at Jubilee Lake

A search continues today at Jubilee Lake for a Walla Walla, Wash., man who disappeared Sunday afternoon after a canoe he was riding in capsized.

Jeffrey Anspach, 51, was reported missing at 1:22 p.m. Sunday, according to Sgt. Bill Miller of the Union County Sheriff’s Office.

Soon after the call was received by dispatch, search and rescue crews from Union and Baker counties were sent to Jubilee Lake, which is 19 miles north of Elgin. The Baker County Search and Rescue crew used side-scan sonar to search for the missing man, but were unable to locate Anspach, Miller said.

The Union County Search and Rescue team is continuing its search today. A Klamath County search and rescue team was en route this morning to assist with the search. 

The team also has a side-scan towable array that will assist with the search.

“It’s a small device that lowers and raises and is shaped like a submarine,” Miller said. 

The cold water of the lake is a concern during the search.

“Hypothermia is a definitely a risk,’’ Miller said. 

Anspach was one of two people in the capsized canoe. The other was an adult woman who was not injured. Miller declined to identify the woman, but did say she was a “family friend.”

The day-use area at Jubilee Lake and the trail around the lake are now closed but its campground remains open, said Joani Bosworth, public affairs officer for the Umatilla National Forest.
