Search and Rescue
10:47pm, Boulder County Dispatch received a call about three teenage males
(15-17 years of age), who had not returned from a fishing trip in the
Allenspark area of Boulder County, Colorado, after leaving to fish at around
6:30pm.The three teens were staying
with others at a nearby cabin, but this was their first time to the area.
The three teens went fishing at a nearby pond, but those who
remained at the cabin, were not sure which pond they went to.Attempts had been made by those at the cabin,
to locate the boys after they had not returned for quite some time, but those
attempts to locate them were unsuccessful.
Due to their ages, unfamiliarity with the area, and
temperatures in the 40’s, with drizzle falling, the decision was made by the
Boulder County Sheriff’s Office to start a search and rescue effort.In addition to personnel from the Sheriff’s
Office, Allenspark Fire Protection District, Rocky Mountain Rescue Group, and
Front Range Rescue Dogs were called to the area, to help search for the boys.
As of the time of this press release, the search for the
teens continues.Updates about the teens’
status will be released when they become available.
The case number for the search and rescue is 15-4541.
