According to reports on James "Randy" Udall from Carbondale, Colorado is missing in the Wind River Range, Wyoming. Udall was reported missing after failing to return from a trip as planned on June 26th. Udall departed from Elkhart Park, a popular trailhead into the Wind River Range near Pinedale, Wyoming. He had planned on backpacking alone for a week. He is an experienced mountaineer and is familiar with the range.

Randy Udall is the brother of U.S. Senator Mark Udall, a representative of Colorado, and cousin of Tom Udall, a Senator from New Mexico. Authorities have been searching for Udall since Friday afternoon but so far have had no luck locating him. They are searching an area of 225 square miles. They are asking for the help of anyone who has been in the area recently, hoping that any who may have seen Udall will come forward.

It has been a tough week for Colorado mountaineers with the deaths of Gary Miller and Steve Gladbach dominating the headlines. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of those affected and our prayers are with the Udall family, hoping for a safe return.

UPDATE (7/4/13): Randy Udall was found dead. See this update article for more information.
