Yesterday afternoon, Friday, October 5, Rocky Mountain National Park rangers were contacted by the Denver Police Department, who had been notified by a family member that Ryan Albert, 30, of Marlton, New Jersey was overdue. It was believed he was attempting Longs Peak on Thursday, October 4. Albert’s rental car was found at the Longs Peak trailhead Friday afternoon. It is unknown what Albert’s planned destination or route was.
This morning, members of Rocky Mountain National Park’s Search and Rescue team began searching the Longs Peak area including the Boulder Field, the Keyhole Route, The Loft, Chasm Cirque, North Longs Peak and Boulder Brook.
