NAME: William Anthony OTT
WEIGHT: 180 lbs
William Anthony OTT was last seen on April 5, 2012 when he was dropped off near Mohawk Canyon on the Hualapai Reservation. OTT’S plans were to solo hike for twenty-one days and had adequate supplies. OTT is described as an experienced hiker and river runner. OTT did not have a cell phone with him but did have a GPS. A local River Company or private group may have observed OTT along the Colorado River as he may have hiked down to the lower Colorado River to contact river guides for food, water and/or transportation. OTT may also be hitchhiking back to Flagstaff area.
