Body Found At Bottom Of Park Cliff

NPS Digest is reporting that on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 10th, rangers searching for the driver of an unattended vehicle, located the body of a young man at the bottom of a cliff in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. The search was begun after rangers noted that the vehicle had been parked on the North Rim overnight.

The body was recovered on July 11th using a Yellowstone National Park helicopter that was staged at Dinosaur National Monument for a possible fire response.

Rangers are working with the Montrose County Sheriff’s Office and Montrose County Medical Examiner’s Office to determine the facts surrounding the incident.
