Search efforts began again early this morning, Saturday, February 2, for a missing man from San Antonio, Texas. Troy Green was reported missing Friday afternoon. Yesterday, fourteen searchers including two dog teams from Larimer County Search and Rescue searched the Bear Lake area.

Today, there are thirty-five searchers involved with this incident. Park rangers are being assisted by Larimer County Search and Rescue and Rocky Mountain Rescue. Since Wednesday there has been continuous winds and snowfall in the Bear Lake area. Accumulation of snow varies based on elevation. At Bear Lake, located at 9,475 feet, there has been 9 inches of new snow since Wednesday. There are numerous trailheads that leave from the Bear Lake area. It is unknown where Mr. Green’s destination was or what kind of clothing he was wearing.

Mr. Green was planning to attend a conference in Denver. When his wife did not hear from him on Thursday, January 31, she contacted the Denver Police Department. He did not arrive at the conference on Friday. On Friday afternoon, an advisory was given for his rental car that matched a vehicle found early Friday morning by park rangers at the Bear Lake parking lot.
