Family Missing For Over Two Weeks Is Found

March 21, 2006
- By KATU.com Web Staff

MEDFORD, Ore. - A family who has been missing for over two weeks has been found alive in the hills north of Medford.

The Stivers family was last heard from on March 4 as they were leaving for an overnight trip on the Oregon coast.

The missing included Marlo Hill-Stivers and Peter Stivers (husband and wife), 10-year-old Sabastyan Stivers and 9-year-old Gabrayell Stivers (their children) and Becky Higgenbothum and her husband Elbert Higgenbothum (in-laws).

According to preliminary reports, the family took a wrong turn and got stuck in the snow, which would explain why none of the family's bank accounts had been used since they disappeared.

Two of the family members walked out and were found by a Bureau of Land Management employee, according to Josephine County Undersheriff Brian Anderson.

The area where the family got stuck is in southwestern Douglas County near the Curry County line.

The area is inaccessible by vehicle due to a heavy snow pack, but a search and rescue operation is under way to get to the family.

One thing I learned, gotta be quick on your toes around here. Glad I wasn't the only one who went searching, though.

This family must not have any beautiful young women in it, or Greta would have talked about them non-stop for the last two weeks.

Glad they're OK, sorry about the looks.

Two weeks stuck in the snow with your in-laws? If that isn't a description of hell freezing over I don't know what is.....

Seriously, I hope the rest of them are okay. Two weeks is a long time to be in the cold. When I go into the mountains in the winter I take a lot of stuff, but not two weeks worth.

I look forward to seeing their story on "I Shouldn't Be Alive" which is a really kickass show on the Discovery Channel or The Learning Channel or one of those other channels like them.

Why not? They deserve it. We always make fun of people who give their kids names like "DaQuonShay". Why should the loopy Stivers parents get a free pass?

Anybody else remember the punk song from a million years ago "Nice legs, shame about the face".

Sorry, that's what your post reminded me of.

The Monks:

Met her on a blind date, helping out an old mate
Waiting at the corner, she’s be dressed in black
There was I expecting a really tasty bird
He said she was good looking, I should have doubt his word
When I saw her there she was a real disgrace
I thought nice legs shame about the face

I had to take her dancing, I couldn’t let her down
So we caught the bus to the other side of town
Out upon the dance floor, I wasn’t getting far
So I had a drink with my friends up at the bar
I asked them what they thought of her they fell about the place
And they said nice legs shame about her face

She said could we go bowling,
I said that would be fine
But when I bought the tickets
She’d already changed her mind
She was turning out to be a real hard case
Nice legs shame about the boat race

Downed a gin and soda, tapped me on the shoulder
Whispered in my ear it’s getting kind of late
When I took her home we hardly said a thing
I walked her to the door, expected to go in
She looked me up and down and really put me in my place
She said nice legs shame about your face
Nice legs shame about your face

There but for the grace of God went us. This could have easily been my family growing up.

Mom: Do you know where we are?

Dad: Yes.

Mom: Are you sure? I don't see this on the map.

Dad: Yeah I'm sure, it's a short cut.

Mom: How do you know a short cut? We've never been in this state before.

Dad: You know what...how about you let me drive since I've got the steering wheel here in front of me!

Mom: Don't yell at me, I'm just asking if you know where we are!

Dad: And I answered you.

Mom: You have no idea where we are do you.

Dad: Is that a question or is it a statement. Because if it's a question, I have already answered it. If it's a statement, I don't need you to tell me things I already know!

Mom: so we are lost.

Dad: I didn't say that.

Mom: Yes you did. You just said you didn't need me to tell you things you already know! That means you know we are lost.

Dad: That's not what I said.

Mom: YES IT WAS!!

Dad: THAT'S NOT WHAT I MEANT!

Me: DAD!! WATCH OUT FOR THAT TREE!!!!!

Amazing what the investment in a $200 GPS unit from Wal-Mart can do to save one's Higgenbothum from Stiverring to death.....that's it.......get into rural wilderness America and forget the elements can kill you.......hmmmmm....even one of those $10 dash-mount compasses can do wonders if one knows the coast is to the west......
