SAMS VALLEY, Ore. – The search for a missing woman and her two children has ended.  Tanda Christiansen, 28, and her daughters, ages 6 and 7, were found Thursday afternoon approximately two miles from their home. 

On Thursday, August 9, 2018, at 1:06 p.m., a resident in the 8400-block of Ramsey Road called dispatch to report finding the three missing subjects on his property.  They were hiding in a brushy area along Sams Creek.  
Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies and search and rescue (SAR) personnel, who were searching nearby, responded to the location.  They found the three were thirsty and hungry, but otherwise safe.  Christiansen and her children were checked by medics at the scene, and then transported by Mercy Flights ambulance to Rogue Regional Medical Center for evaluation.  
No further information is available at this time.  SAR officials and detectives wish to thank everyone who looked for the missing family.
