MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Wyo. — After a week of searching for a missing man from Utah, Yellowstone National Park officials announced Friday they are switching to a recovery mission.
Kim Crumbo, of Ogden, and his half-brother, Mark O’Neill, never returned from a backcountry trip last weekend. The remains of O’Neill were discovered on Monday, Sept. 20 on the east shore of Shoshone Lake.
During the last week, search and rescue personnel searched trails in the area of Shoshone Lake. In addition, crews also scanned the shoreline by boat. The open water was also searched by helicopter.
On Friday, search and rescue crews began looking for clues in the water with use of sonar equipment. With the assistance of the Grand Teton National Park interagency helicopter, the search for Crumbo will continue by foot and boat.
Park officials say recovery efforts will continue for the next several days as conditions allow.
