Search For Missing Seasonal Employee Continues

Glacier National Park

National Park News

The search continues for missing seasonal employee Jacob “Jake” Rigby.  Several crews endured rainy and cold conditions as they camped overnight in the search area. Snow was reported at approximately 6,400 feet and low cloud cover limited aerial operations until later in the day on Thursday. Ground crews, in addition to the crews that camped overnight, searched throughout the day. A small piece of red plastic was found in the search area, but it is has not been determined if it is related to Rigby. It is unclear what the plastic is or where it may have come from. Investigators do believe that Rigby may have in his possession, or may be wearing, a green Flylow jacket. The search area is located between the Ole Creek and Park Creek drainages in the southern end of the park.  Crews are searching in very steep and rugged landscapes.  The search effort will continue today.  Flathead Valley Search and Rescue and Flathead National Forest are assisting with the effort.  Posters with Rigby’s photo and key information have been posted in the park and other locations.
