The search for the missing climber in Glacier National Park is scaling back after park officials have found scant clues regarding his location.
Jakson Kreiser, 19, went missing last Sunday after departing for a day hike. Glacier National Park officials kept the search at full scale for over a week, mobilizing climbing professional teams, helicopters, air craft, and hundreds of volunteers over the course of the week.
Yet today National Parks Traveler is reporting that Incident Commander Scott Emmerich is beginning to scale down the search, absent any promising information.
“The clues we’ve found have been investigated and our available resources depleted with aerial and ground crews covering an expansive and rugged area,” Emmerich told National Parks Traveler. “We remain hopeful that, in time, additional clues will come forward renewing an active search effort.”
