Kelsey McCune and Samantha Dodson may be looking for places to camp.

Thursday morning updates on the search for 13-year-old endangered runaway Samantha Dodson, who may have left with 40-year-old male Kelsey McCune:
• The search is continuing, with the help of the FBI and other agencies. SWAT personnel, working with search-and-rescue (SAR) coordinators, are searching the Newell Creek area in Oregon City. SWAT is a uniquely skilled team well-qualified to search this terrain. They are also the largest law-enforcement resource that could be activated quickly to work with SAR coordinators.
• Authorities believe Samantha Dodson, age 13, and Kelsey “Patrick” McCune, age 40, may be using public transit. They may also have camping equipment. The Sheriff’s Office is concerned about Dodson’s welfare because of the record-cold temperatures expected to last for days — leading CCSO to deploy extra resources in this case.
• Dodson’s family and law enforcement are deeply concerned, and urge her to contact 911 or family as soon as possible to make sure she is safe.
• Kelsey McCune has no known address, but is known to make money doing freelance computer work. He may be carrying large duffel bags and/or backpacks with camping-type gear.
• Thanks to the help and cooperation of the FBI and Clear Channel, a new billboard is going up on McLoughlin Boulevard featuring the latest known photo of Samantha Dodson. Two more Clear Channel billboards are also planned for Washington County. An image of this billboard is attached to this release.
• Again: If you see Samantha Dodson or Kelsey McCune, please call 911 immediately. Tips and info can also be sent to our Tip Line — by calling (503) 723-4949 or by using the online e-mail form.
