" ...but reportedly left some of his gear at home and may not have been carrying a tent or heavy winter jacket."
I noticed he's from Broomfield. It was in single digits when I was there last week. While that's unusual, this is still way too late in the year to expect anything but winter conditions on Long's. I hope he found a sheltered place to hole up, but it's been a long time.
