47-year-old Blue River man who has been missing for almost five months still remains a mystery. His sister, Stacy Sprenger, says the family hopes that as the weather improves and snow melts people will help look in areas where he could possibly be found.
Shane Sprenger's abandoned silver 2009 GMC Sierra was found near U.S. Forest Service Rd. 15 east of Blue River Reservoir last November 4th. Cellphone pings seemed to show Sprenger had been near the reservoir, but his phone had been turned off.
On the day he was reported missing, Sheriff's Office K-9 teams, deputies, and Search & Rescue volunteers began looking in areas where Sprenger was believed to be. The search included areas off of U.S. Forest Service Road 15, as well as the Blue River Saddle Dam. They also searched extensively behind the former Lazy Days Mobile Home Park in the 52000 block of McKenzie Hwy. and at a location generated earlier by phone ping.
Shane Sprenger is described as 6' 1", weighing 175 pounds, with receding brown hair, and using glasses for reading. It's believed he was wearing a camo jacket and dark work pants.
Anyone with information on Sprenger's whereabouts should contact the Lane County Sheriff's Office at 541-682-4150 and reference case number 21-6268.
