Missing Paddler - Black Gore - Fish Ladders

Any news on missing paddler? Vail Daily has little info.

Thoughts and prayers going out to all involved.

I just posted the limited article I could find and was wondering the same, Black Gore makes more sense, I read it as Gore Creek through town.

Times two on the thoughts and prayers to those involved....

A tragic loss

Drew Hunter was a solid kayaker and a fantastic guy. Also a great friend. Every day on the river is a gift. Treasure them all and be safe.

I suggest everyone to take a river rescue class before going to rivers above class III. Everyone needs the knowledge to be safe, no matter how great of a paddler. Keep Colorado safe!!!

Well feelings to the family and friends of Drew.

I only met Drew a handful of times, but he was great guy. Rest in peace and condolences to his family. Super sad deal. They have been through a lot. My thoughts and prayers to his friends and family.

BTW Thanks bmml112 you have tremendous insight.
