A friend of the missing man left a comment on my website last night trying to get the word out to people who spend time up there.

This is kind of a long shot, but I’ve searching blogs for recent hikes in Utah in the area you have been in, please read this and forward it on to any friends you have who may have seen my Uncle Eric, any snippet of information may be vital to the search. This is absolutely not spam and you may have even heard about him in your local news and been in touch already.

We looked for him on the western portion of the trail, but we obviously didn't see him. :(

His last known location was in the forest below Bluebell Pass (west side) on August 2nd. The scout troop he ran into told him he was way off course and they pointed him back towards the Highline Trail, 4 miles north. That's the last anyone saw of him. Late last week they flew his wife and daughter into the upper Lakefork drainage where they erected a memorial for him near Red Knob Pass.
