Search Underway For Missing Man in Bear Lake Area of Rocky Mountain National Park
Mr. Green was planning to attend a conference in Denver. When his wife did not hear from him on January 31st, she contacted the Denver Police Department. He did not arrive at the conference today. This afternoon, an advisory was given for his rental car that matched a vehicle found early Friday morning by park rangers at the Bear Lake parking lot.
Fourteen searchers including two dog teams from Larimer County Search and Rescue are searching the Bear Lake area. Due to extremely cold temperatures, wind and impending darkness, searchers were brought out of the backcountry Friday night. There are numerous trailheads that leave from the Bear Lake area.
Search efforts will begin again this morning. If anyone was visiting the Bear Lake area of Rocky Mountain National Park on Thursday, January 31st, or Friday, February 1st, park rangers would like to hear from you. Please call Rocky Mountain National Park at (970) 586-1204.
