Remains Of Missing Concession Employee Found

Glacier National Park

National Park News

The remains of a 19-year-old concession employee, missing since late July, were found by hikers near Hidden Lake yesterday. An autopsy is to be performed to determine the cause of death. The search for Jakson Kreiser began on July 29th after he failed to return as scheduled from a hike he took the previous day. Park employees, with assistance from North Valley Search and Rescue, Flathead Search and Rescue, Can Am Search and Rescue, Flathead County Sheriff’s Office, Lake County Sheriff’s Office, and the US Border Patrol, conducted an extensive ground and aerial search for eight days before scaling back efforts. The search area was focused between Hidden Lake and Avalanche Lake, and in the Floral Park area. This area includes some treacherous country filled with rock cliffs, waterfalls, wet and slippery rocks and boulders, and dense vegetation.  Kreiser was from Michigan and a seasonal employee with Glacier Park, Inc. at Lake McDonald Lodge.  This was his first year working in the area.
