A missing Rogue River man has been found safe and sound in Northern California.

A missing Rogue River man has been found safe and sound in Northern California.

In October, the Jackson County Sheriff's Department was searching for William Edward Pickett, 58, after his family reported they hadn't heard from him in more than a month.

It was thought that Pickett, who has ties to the Wolf Creek area, might be headed to Klamath Falls or California, but neither family nor friends in those areas had heard from him.

A sheriff's spokeswoman said the Eureka, Calif., police have made contact with Pickett, who told them he had come to the area in search of employment.
