Douglas County man found

A Southern Oregon man who vanished almost two years ago is alive.

Dwes Hutson, a spokesman with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, said that 52-year-old Michael Mallory has apparently been living in San Diego for eight months. He says Mallory was detained at the border this week while trying to return from a trip to Mexico.

Mallory was entered into a computer system as a missing person in March 2008, when his pickup was found crashed against a tree along a riverbank and the weekend receipts from his Roseburg coffee stand were gone. According to news reports at the time, the coffee business had caused a family rift.

Hutson says Mallory was allowed to go home because he is not wanted by authorities.
