Search Continues For Hunter Last Seen In Summit County
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Authorities on Thursday resumed the search for a hunter who has been missing since Oct. 14, officials said.
According to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, Carl Crumrine, 69, of West Virginia, was last seen at 5:30 a.m. on the day he went missing. He was hunting with a group in the Lyman Lake area of the Unita-Wasatch-Cache National Forest in eastern Summit County.
In a statement, the SCSO wrote that Crumrine was prepared for cold weather and had a small amount of food with him, however, he is new to the area.
He reportedly left the campsite on foot and walked toward Lyman Lake. When he’d failed to return that afternoon, his hunting group went looking for him.
Summit County Sheriff posted a tweet Thursday morning noting authorities are “grateful for all the agencies and personnel assisting in the search of missing hunter, Carl Crumrine.”
