Approximately 30 police officers, fire personnel, state parks employees and citizens continue searching for a 5-year old boy last seen late Wednesday afternoon playing with other kids at Carl G. Washburne Memorial State Park north of Florence. Lane County Sheriff's Office Search & Rescue personnel arrived late Wednesday night and have taken over coordination of the search effort.
 
According to Oregon State Police Sergeant Andy Kenyon, on August 4, 2010 at approximately 5:00 p.m. ISAAK BENJAMIN GLENN, age 5, from Veneta, had arrived at the state park with family friends earlier in the day and was reportedly playing with several other children near their campsite when one of the children noticed he was not around.
 
Family friends assisted by several other campers and the park camp hosts immediately started searching around the park but were unable to find the boy. Oregon State Police was notified about 30 minutes later and four troopers responded. Siuslaw Fire Department personnel also responded to help coordinate the search efforts now being led by Lane County Sheriff's Office Search & Rescue.
 
ISAAK BENJAMIN GLENN is described as a white male, 3 ft. 6 in. tall, weighing 40 – 45 pounds. He has red hair, brown eyes, and was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt, gray shorts and flip-flop style sandals. His parents were notified and drove from their home to the state park to help.
 
Conditions in the area Wednesday night are described as foggy with temperatures in the 50's.
