Updated: 4 p.m.

Police have found the family of the man who died Tuesday night after he was struck while walking along Highway 62.

Timothy Jay Frizzell, 61, a transient whose last known address was in Vancouver, Wash., was struck by a car driven by Kathy Lynn Schaecher, 51, of Central Point, as he walked into the eastbound lanes of the highway near Vilas Road, said Oregon State Police Sgt. Jeff Fitzgerald. The road was dark and foggy in spots at the time, Fitzgerald said.

Investigators were unable to find Frizzell's family and sought the public's help. After hearing the plea, relatives living on central Oregon coast and in the Portland area contacted police.

An investigation into the accident is continuing.
