The annual meeting is required by the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality under the siting permit issued more than a decade ago.

Search for missing hunter suspended

The Carbon County Sheriff’s Office announced Monday morning that the search for 44-year-old Mark Anthony Strittmater near Forest Road 801 and Forest Road 830 has been suspended.

Cadaver and search dogs were deployed Saturday in the search for the missing hunter. Civil Air Patrol from Pinedale flew overhead while individuals explored the area by foot.

Six days of searching by air and ground turned up few clues into Strittmater’s disappearance. Carbon County Sheriff Archie Roybal thanked everyone who was involved in the search.

If anyone has additional information regarding the disappearance of Mark Strittmater, who failed to return from an elk hunt on Oct. 20th, they should contact the sheriff’s office at 307-324-2776.

Bigfoot 99 talked with Sheriff Roybal today and will have more on this story Tuesday morning.
