The search continued today for a missing at-risk Hillsboro man last seen Thursday and believed to be heading west on U.S. Highway 26.

Horn suffers from bipolar disorder and was recently depressed over a series of life situations. He was under a doctor’s care for his medical condition, but is believed to have been under the influence of alcohol and prescription pills at the time of his departure, postings said. Horn did not take identification with him and it is believed that he took a firearm.

Horn is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 185 pounds. He has dark brown recently “buzzed” hair, blue eyes and he is clean shaven. He left wearing dark jeans and a dark gray hooded sweatshirt. He was driving a 2002 dark red Ford Ranger pickup, Oregon plates 806 FFR.

“If you have the time to assist, our family would be grateful from the bottom of our hearts,” said Jessica Bledsoe, Horn’s sister. “We especially ask hikers, birdwatchers, campers, hunters or any one else in Washington, Columbia and Clatsop counties to be on the lookout for Ryan and call 911.”

Police and his family are asking that the community continue to be vigilant and keep their eyes out for him. Police are asking the public to call 911 immediately if Horn or his truck is spotted.
