Missing hikers in emigrant

Use this forum to stay informed on missing persons alerts, active SAR's and unfortunate hiker accidents we can all hopefully learn from. Any information you may have on a missing person, including first hand weather related information or any other insight (however little) may prove to be critical information to Law Enforcement / SAR in locating the person in question.

Delorme Inreach SE =awesome. Handshake tells you msg received and can 2 way txt. GPS too. Uses Iridium Sat system, very reliable...ReConn good too. No batteries required!
Like the old Amex commercial "don't leave home w/o it"

I do not understand the reluctance to simply turn back and return the way you came when you run into too much snow of difficult terrain. I have retreated plenty of itmes. It beats trying uncertain new routes forward.
