A 69-year-old hunter has gone missing in the Uintas, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office said in a release, and the authorities have deployed resources including Summit County Search and Rescue, helicopters and searchers on horseback in an effort to find him.

Carl Crumrine, a West Virginian who was hunting with a group in the Lyman Lake area of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, was last seen around 5:30 a.m. on Monday.

Members of his group searched for Crumrine that evening after he failed to return to the campsite, but contacted law enforcement around 9 p.m. after they could not find him.

He had left the campground on foot and was last known to be walking toward Lyman Lake, which is about 4 miles south of the Wyoming border and 40 miles northeast of Kamas.

Crumrine was prepared for cold weather and had a small amount of food with him, according to the release, but is new to the area. He is 5-foot-10 and has gray hair and blue eyes. He is believed to be wearing a camouflage shirt, coat, pants and a hunter-orange vest that is partially black, as well as Muck boots, a camouflage hat with orange accents and has a camouflage backpack. Crumrine is also believed to be in possession of a hunting rifle.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 435-615-3600.
