Montana Officials Scale Back Search for Man Missing in Park
KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — Officials at Glacier National Park have scaled back the search for a missing man.
The Daily Inter Lake reports that 66-year-old Mark Sinclair was last seen by Logan Pass Visitor Center staff July 8.
Officials say Sinclair is still considered a missing person but the search effort has been downgraded to a “limited continuous mode.”
Officials say active searching will not occur every day in the northwest Montana park, but patrols will continue looking in a reduced capacity.
Officials say the search began July 9 for the man whose last known address was in Whitefish.
Sinclair was seen in a parking lot heading toward the Highline Trail after leaving behind his dog, unsecured vehicle and car keys.
The park will continue investigating in hopes of gathering information about Sinclair’s whereabouts.
