Kayakers find body in the Crystal near Redstone

I heard this on the radio this morning. Sounds like he was a boater from Carbondale. Anybody got any details?

I have not heard that authorities have identified the man found. A best guess is that it is Uriah Shaffer. He went missing on Bogan Canyon (Crystal River) in early June. More info that you can use to follow up is HERE > LINK

Myself and Scotty Mann went looking on Saturday for Uriah . We found him... Can I please get contact info for the boaters that were with him the day it happened... Basically, I got a call from gunny sheriffs/cb fire dept... We used a go- pro to look into deep pools under stainers... We also sifted thru debris piles... We found Uriah body wrapped on a concrete divider under the bridge... Somebody get me contact info please!!! Milo Wynne- 970-275-1890

I'm sorry you had to experience that, but I'm sure friends and family are grateful. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you want someone to talk to.

Milo,
I was just talking to Uriah's mother last week. They have had services but this will help close a big void, not knowing is awful. Thank you so much.
