DeOrr vanished July 10, 2015, while at the Timber Creek Campground in Lemhi County with his parents, great-grandfather and a friend of his great-grandfather. There has been no sign of DeOrr since that day, and nobody has been charged in connection to his disappearance.
Earlier this month local investigators were searching an unknown area in Lemhi County with private investigator David Marshburn. They have identified an “area of interest” in relation to the case, but have not elaborated on where that area is or why they are interested in it.
