Lost party located safely in the Beaver Reservoir area

Boulder County, Colo. - On Friday, July 15, 2022 at approximately 7:13 p.m., the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a missing male party with medical conditions in the Beaver Reservoir area. The male had been missing for approximately one hour, recently experienced a stroke, and had other concerning medical conditions.

Indian Peaks Fire Protection District and deputies with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office were first to arrive and began a search of the area. The terrain was heavily wooded with very few trails making the search difficult. More agencies arrived to aid in the search when a volunteer located the missing male on the Peak-to-Peak Highway. The 55-year-old male from Broomfield was missing for approximately three hours and was reunited with his family. The search took approximately three and a half hours.
