James Kim found dead

From AP:

“MERLIN, Ore. – A San Francisco man who got lost in the snowy wilderness with his family nearly two weeks ago was found dead Wednesday in the mountains, authorities said.
James Kim, 35, had set out on foot during the weekend to find help for his stranded family in Oregon’s snowy coastal mountains. Clothing and bits of an Oregon map turned up Tuesday in a drainage in which search and rescue teams sought Kim, who had been missing since Saturday.

Clothing belonging to Kim, 35, had been found by searchers, including two gray sweat shirts, a red T-shirt, a sock and a blue girl’s skirt, said Lt. Gregg Hastings of the Oregon State Patrol. Family members said Kim had taken the items when he left.

“They were laid out in a well defined area, in a pattern,” Hastings said. The pattern led officers to believe that “little signs are being left by James.”

Searchers also found a pair of gray pants they believed belonged to Kim. The family said he was wearing the pants over blue jeans when he left.”

The James and Kati website is currently accepting donations which will be handed over to the family.
