Crews looking for missing hiker

November 16, 2010
Tonto Rim Search and Rescue volunteers and Gila County Sheriff officers are currently searching for an overdue hiker.

The man, whose name has not been released, was last heard from nine days ago and is believed to be hiking near the Mt. Peeley trail or Sheep Mountain, off Forest Road 201, southwest of Payson.

The Gila County Sheriff’s Office first received a call that the man was overdue Monday, Nov. 15 about 9 p.m.

“The hiker has not been heard from since Nov. 7 and frequents the Mazatzal Mountain Wilderness area,” according to a press release from the sheriff’s office.

The missing hiker’s vehicle was located at the Mt. Peeley trailhead.



Six TRSAR volunteers are currently searching the ground. Earlier Tuesday, a Department of Public Safety Ranger helicopter did an aerial search of the area, but found no signs of the man

Hi all, I have been out of state the last few years but I check this tread from time to time for gpsjoe updates. I've been surprised to see no new news for several years. Is there still no closure to this tragedy?

I see that no one directly involved in the original search has got back to you but no he was never found and I do not know if anyone on this site or others are still looking for him. Originally there was a reward posted by his relatives but I do not know if that is still offered. Perhaps someone more familiar with current searches for Joe will reply.

Just fyi.. On the same date as Roadtorque posted, I acknowledged back to him via our more appropriate HAZ Personal Mail to reconfirm this topic as "no official closure" to date.

Also, regarding the below comment "Originally there was a reward posted by his relatives but I do not know if that is still offered." There was never a reward posted by GPSjoe's relatives.
