EUGENE, Ore. – A Eugene man who was reported missing after not returning from a beach trip was located Friday afternoon.

Officials say Adam Specht, 56, has been transported to an area hospital for evaluation.

He had last been seen at about 9 a.m. on Thursday. He had told family members he was headed to the coast, but he has not returned to his home in North Eugene.

His vehicle and cell phone were found in the North Jetty parking lot near Florence.

Family members told police it’s unusual for Specht to be away from home for a long time without contacting them, and they are worried for his well-being.

Eugene and Florence police, Siuslaw Valley Fire, and the United States Coast Guard have been assisting with the search, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office said.

Police said Specht is white, about 6 feet 2 inches tall, and 145 pounds. He has graying hair and a light gray beard.
