Search underway for lost woman near Bald Mountain

By Patrick Parkinson, of The Record staff

Searchers are combing the Uinta Mountains east of Kamas for a Salt Lake County woman who was last seen by a camp attendant at the Soapstone campground Saturday.

Gina Trujillo, 48, was reported missing to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office Sunday evening. Her vehicle was found parked at the Bald Mountain trailhead at 10 a.m. Sunday.

Volunteer Summit County Sheriff’s Office searchers, American Search Dogs and a state Department of Public Safety helicopter pilot were participating in Monday’s search, which began at about 10 a.m.

"We just barely got guys on scene," said Detective Ron Bridge, of the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, in a telephone interview. "It first came in as an overdue party."

Bridge said Trujillo was camping by herself in the Uintas Saturday.

He was unsure whether she was prepared to spend another night in the woods

"She was camping when she was last seen so it just depends on what she put into her pack," Bridge said.

Trujillo was expected to have returned when her daughter reported her missing.
