A rafter missing on the Clackamas River has been found in good condition. The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office says 21-year-old Bryton Schmidt called his parents Monday morning from his home in Battle Ground, Wash. Roughly 45 minutes before the phone call, a couple driving near Carver reported seeing a hitchhiker who was wearing only shorts, and appeared cold and dirty. Schmidt was reported missing by a friend Sunday night when they failed to meet up at Carver Park. The two had launched about 4 p.m. at Barton Park and became separated as it grew dark while they were on the water. The sheriff's office says Schmidt was last seen walking through a shallow finger of the river with a partially deflated float tube. He was reported to be intoxicated.
