Kayakers needed for search and rescue near Bogan Canyon

A kayaker drowned after swimming on the Crystal River Bogan Canyon run Saturday evening. We've been working with local search and rescue teams since Saturday and need additional kayakers capable of high water class IV kayaking. Other volunteers are encouraged for other tasks. If you or someone is available please call. Nine seven oh 47 one 110 three.

Thanks. Be safe.

More info

Here is some more info on this... Please be safe out there folks it's going to be a big year.

The Gunnison County Sheriff’s Department is coordinating the search for a missing Grand Junction man after a kayak accident Saturday on the Crystal River.

Uriah Shaffer, 39, reportedly overturned his kayak after entering the river below Marble with four other men. Two days of searching along the river have not yielded any results.

High water has made the effort difficult, according to Gunnison County Sheriff Rick Besecker. He expects crews to spend another day searching before the risks to personnel outweigh the potential benefits.

“We’re not confident that this is going to be a rescue at this point,” Besecker said. “It most likely will be a recovery.”

I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

Very sad indeed, that stretch thru Bogan is beautiful and sporty, if they decide it is my time some particular day there could be worst places to meet your Maker. God rest in peace...
