Search continues for missing hiker in Little Wild Horse

Emery County Sheriff LaMar Guymon reported the Emery County Sheriff's Office and the Search and Rescue has searched the area of Little Wild Horse Canyon and northwest of Little Wild Horse and Bell Canyon for missing hiker Rose Backhaus. She has been missing in the area since Nov. 16, 2008.

"We searched the area twice before the large storm came in this last week. The area was searched by foot, ATV and on horseback. Roger Jensen organized a large party of riders on horseback and combed the area. They located some footprints and took GPS readings and our Search and Resue people will return to that location to further investigate as weather permits.

"We are waiting for the snow to clear. We have had investigators in Denver, but there have been no additional leads in the case. Anyone can search at any time and our organized searches will resume weather permitting as soon as we can," said Sheriff Guymon.
