After a full day of search efforts, rangers found a missing hiker in Rocky Mountain National Park, according to the park service.

Rangers were travelling east bound on Trail Ridge Road, where they had searched extensively, when they saw Jay Starr Jr. lying on a rock along the shoulder of the road. Starr was found in poor condition and was initially uncooperative. Starr was subsequently provided care and assistance. Due to Starr’s exposure above treeline over multiple days he was flown by Flight for Life to Medical Center of the Rockies.
