Boulder County, Colo. - On March 4, just after 7:00 p.m., the City of Boulder Communications Center received a phone call regarding a missing person. The male was reported missing by a family member who was concerned about their welfare.
A search dog team conducted an initial search last night on Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks property and was able to define a much smaller search area. A secondary search was launched this morning at 7:30 a.m.
Approximately one hour later, city rangers located a deceased male in the Gregory Canyon area. Search and rescue teams recovered and transported the body to the Gregory Canyon Trailhead.
The following agencies were involved in this search: Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, City of Boulder Police Department, City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks, Front Range Rescue Dogs and Rocky Mountain Rescue Group.
