At least 40 people from nine agencies are searching for a missing man today in the rugged terrain around Cataract Lakes near Heeney, located about 75 miles east of Denver.
Summit County Sheriff's spokeswoman Paulette Hoar says 49-year-old Richard Keuhn has been missing since he was seen backpacking around the area on Friday. He was reported missing yesterday after he did not show up for work.
Hoar says 35 to 40 searchers looked for the Denver-area chiropractor yesterday and found his car at the Cataract Lakes trailhead.
Wednesday, dogs and a blackhawk helicopter are helping crews search for Keuhn in a 20 to 25 miles area.
