SALIDA, Colo. (AP) — Chaffee County authorities have called in search and rescue teams from across Colorado to help find an Ohio man who has not been heard from for a week.
Gene George, of Bay Village, Ohio, spoke to a friend in Cleveland from a hotel room on Sept. 18, saying he planned to hike the Mount Harvard area on Thursday or Friday. A concerned hotel employee notified Buena Vista police on Sunday when George failed to check out of his hotel room.
The Denver Post reports (http://tinyurl.com/oddrovk ) Chaffee County undersheriff John Spezze requested help from search teams in Summit, Eagle, Gunnison, Pitkin and Teller counties. Forty hikers, four search dogs and two horseback teams scoured the area and could not find him.
