SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The search for a missing West Virginia hunter in Utah has stretched into a fifth day.
On Saturday October 19,The Summit County Sheriff’s Office said that multiple agencies have assisted in the search for 69–year–old Carl Crumrine, of West Virginia. Authorities say he was last seen Monday in the Lyman Lake area of the Uinta Mountains in Utah while on a group hunting trip.
Authorities added the Garrett Bardsley Foundation had organized Saturday’s volunteer search effort, which began around 9 A.M.
The foundation was started by a man whose son went missing in the same mountain range 15 years ago. It aims to help with search and rescue operations in the wilderness.
Sheriff’s Lt. Andrew Wright said that the weekend weather forecast in Salt Lake City is a concern in the ongoing search for Crumrine.
