Oscar Florence Hintta
Missing since November 1989 from Kenton, Houghton County, Michigan
Classification: Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Oscar Hintta, a retired custodian from Calumet, went deer hunting in the Kenton area with a friend in November of 1989. The two hunters went off in different directions, Hintta going down an old logging road.
When Hintta failed to show up a few hours later, his friend notified authorities.

The search effort was hampered greatly by a freak weather pattern that moved into the area the very next day.
When the search resumed, a Coast Guard helicopter and the MSP Canine Unit from Negaunee were called in. The three-day search turned up nothing.
