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.

Investigators are looking for hikers that may have seen him to call or email in any sightings to help them narrow down a place last seen and descriptions of his gear and clothing. They are particularly interested in sightings of Tenczar in off trail and cross country locations.

Has visited the Robinson Creek area numerous times before and knew the area well.
