An "endangered" Oregon teenager who was last seen Tuesday night may be traveling with a 40-year-old transient man and looking for places to camp, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

Samantha Dodson, 13, was last seen Tuesday night in Oregon City.

Police called the teen an "endangered runaway" and said she may be in the company of Kelsey McCune, 40, a family friend who authorities said has no permanent address.

It was unclear if the teen left home willingly; however police said she does not have a history of running away.

Dodson, who recently dyed her hair red, was described by police as 5-foot-4 and 125 pounds with brown eyes and a slim build.

Police said McCune is 6 feet tall and 170 pounds with a glass eye and salt-and-pepper hair.

A hashtag, #FindSamantha, has been started on Twitter to raise awareness of the search for Dodson.
