Body Of Missing Seasonal Employee Found

Glacier National Park

National Park News

Search personnel found the body of seasonal employee Jacob “Jake” Rigby last Friday afternoon. It was found on the mountain known as “8888” in the southern end of the park.  The initial investigation indicates that Rigby may have fallen approximately 800 feet on the north side of the extremely steep mountain. Rigby’s body was spotted by helicopter personnel during an aerial search of the high-probability area between Ole Creek and Park Creek drainages.  The extensive search effort began on Monday, August 29th, after Rigby was reported overdue from a personal day hike in the park the previous day. More than 50 people helped with the search efforts. Personnel from Flathead Valley Search and Rescue and the Flathead National Forest assisted with the search.  Rigby, 27, had worked for the exotic plant team at the park for the past three summers. He also worked at other National Park Service sites during the winter season.
