Deputies and DHS Seek Help in Locating a Wanted Man and His 3-Year-Old Child

Washington Co. Sheriff's Office

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Department of Human Services (DHS) are asking for the public’s help in locating Gaige Burnes (date of birth: July 6, 1993) and his three-year-old son, Colt Burnes. Gaige currently has a misdemeanor warrant for his arrest and is suspected to be transient in the Hillsboro area, possibly near Shute Park.

Gaige’s son, Colt, is believed to be with him.  DHS currently has a Protective Custody Order for Colt.  Due to past incidents, DHS believes Colt could be in harm's way or not receiving the care he needs.

Anyone with information about Gaige or Colt Burnes is asked to call non-emergency dispatch at (503) 629-0111.  Deputies ask the public not to confront Gaige if they see him in public.

DHS currently has custody of Colt and has given permission to use Colt’s picture for media purposes. This is the best photo available of Colt.
