Motorcyclist missing in Poudre

As of a little while ago there was search goin for a motorcyclist in the River. Looks as if he went in right at super collider hitting the guard rail, same place it's happened before.

Lots of search and rescue up there and they hadn't recovered the person yet. Just throwing a heads up out there for all the after work boaters.

Your opinion doesn't matter when you're already biased.

Hopefully they find him alive, that stretch is tempting to open up on when riding.

We ran upper mish last night and ran into a bunch of SAR people and friends of the victim looking for the missing motorcyclist. They told us to be on the lookout and that the person was wearing a colorful aloha shirt. There is a blurb in the colorodoan:

Local briefs: Motorcycle rider missing after crash in Poudre Canyon | | The Coloradoan,

Last time this happened they stopped releasing from all reservoirs up high for several days to aid in the search and the body was'nt found till fall.

*Public Service Announcement*

At approximately 2 pm yesterday a motorcyclist lost control of his motorcycle and went into the river at mile marker 102 (the Narrows). After an extensive search with dozens of Emergency Services Personnel, the body has not been found. The river is still open for recreational boating, hiking and tourism.

What to do- If you find anything suspicious (something that looks like a body,clothing, motorcycle gear) please do not touch it. Leave it in place, take note of exact location and contact Larimer County Sherriff Dispatch
Non-Emergency at 416-1985. If the suspicious item looks like it may be a body, if at all possible, leave someone with the item until Emergency Services Personnel arrive. There are telephones at the Mish and Columbine Lodge. These items and the body may be found anywhere below the Narrows (including Upper Mish on down). They may be traveling or lodged in place.

Also, be cautious of Emergency Services Personnel on the roadside and
riverside. Please drive and boat safely and be courteous.
