Boy Scout’s Father Subject Of Intensive Search

Camp Loll

A 57 year-old man attending a Teton County boy scout camp with his son was the subject of a search that extended over portions of two days. David Harris of Harrisville, Utah was found about two to 2½ miles from camp after spending a day and a night out, wearing only flip flops, shorts and a tee shirt.  Teton County Search and Rescue President Tim Ciocarlan says Harris had stepped away from camp about 6:00 am to take some photos, and when he didn’t return by 3:30 pm,  members of the Camp Loll staff launched a search.  Then about two hours later, they called for help from the county search and rescue team.  Ciocarlan says altogether 40 to 50 search and rescue volunteers and staff members aided by a helicopter searched the area but failed to turn up any sign of Harris.  The search was broken off at dark, but resumed Saturday morning with a total of 75 Grand Teton National Park rangers, Bridger Teton National Forest Personnel, Search and Rescue members, Boy Scout Camp Staff and a helicopter participating.  By 9:30, Harris was located southwest of camp suffering only scratches and dehydration.  Undersheriff Bob Gilliam says the outcome could have been much different given the rugged terrain and the heavy bear population in the area.  Ciocarlan adds that the young men and women who make up the predominantly youth staff of Camp Loll were extremely professional and prepared and truly helpful in the effort.

  • Don’t let snakes ruin your Labor Day - September 1, 2014
    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]
