Post by maverick » Mon Oct 30, 2017 3:56 pm

SEKI NP:
Park Rangers are seeking additional leads to aid in the search for a missing hiker, 37-year-old Joseph Patrick Leap, from Lakewood, CO. Mr. Leap is overdue from a solo day hike out of Cedar Grove in Kings Canyon National Park. Mr. Leap planned to hike from Roads End to Mist Falls and Paradise Valley, and return to Roads End the same day.

Mr. Leap planned on departing for his hike on Sunday morning, October 29 from the Roads End Trailhead where his vehicle has been located. He is described as an experienced hiker, but not familiar with the area.

Personnel from the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks Search and Rescue Team are currently conducting ground and aerial search operations. If you have any information, please contact the park at 888-677-2746 with your name, contact information, and additional details.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
