Body of Sisters man recovered at Suttle Lake

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office reported on Tuesday, August 22, that the body of Ben Hendrickson, the Sisters resident who was last seen August 12 at Blue Bay Campground at Suttle Lake, was recovered from the lake on Tuesday morning.

The sheriff reports that no foul play is suspected and alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the drowning. Family members have been notified and the sheriff asks "everyone to respect their privacy and pray for them, as they deal with this tragedy."

Hendrickson, 33, was reported missing from the Blue Bay Campground near Suttle Lake on Sunday afternoon, August 13. He had not been seen since late Saturday night.

Jefferson County deputies responded to a missing person's report, and conducted extensive searches of the area.

They found Hendrickson's kayak and some personal property on the first day of searching east of the campground along the south side shoreline

A GoFundMe page has been set up to assist Ben's family. Go to GoFundMe.com and search Ben Hendrickson - Help Heather!

A fundraising benefit for Ben's family is planned on Saturday, September 2, at Hardtails Bar & Grill on Larch Street in Sisters.

The fundraiser will be open to the public and minors will be allowed in the yard from the start time of 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. The fundraiser will continue after that through the evening.

There will be a raffle featuring prizes donated from around Sisters Country; food specials with 100 percent of sales going to Ben's family; silent auctions and more.

Live music is donated by Rhonda Funk, Bobby Lindstrom and others, with the main event starting at 8:30 p.m. with The HWY 97 Band. Donation jars will be out at Hardtails all week for Ben's family, to help them with all their expenses.
