Yellowstone search scales back

/

Yellowstone National Park is scaling back search and recovery efforts for 74-year-old Kim Crumbo of Ogden, Utah. The search for Crumbo has continued for nearly three weeks using helicopters, boats, sonar technology and ground crews. 

Crumbo and his brother Mark O’Neill, from Chimacum, Washington, were reported overdue by a family member Sunday, September 19th from their four-night backcountry trip to Shoshone Lake. Park search crews found O’Neill’s body on the east shore of Shoshone Lake on Monday, September 20th. 

He had died from exposure to the elements. The pair’s campsite was also located on the lakeshore along with their gear. 

Current weather forecasts call for deteriorating conditions over the upcoming week, including snow and freezing temperatures. 

The Park will continue limited search efforts as long as conditions allow this year.
