A 26-YEAR-OLD Texas man went missing near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
Jared Hembree was last seen on Thursday, October 21 in the park where Gabby Petito’s remains were found last month.
Hembree’s car was found in the parking area of Game Warden Point but he was nowhere to be seen.
A call expressing concern about Hembree’s well-being was made to park law enforcement.
Hembree is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs around 170 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a green t-shirt with black pants and might be carrying a black backpack.
Ground and aerial searches are being done to cover as much of the park as possible.
Grand Teton National Park law enforcement rangers, Teton Country Sheriff’s Office deputies, and Teton County Search and Rescue are involved in the operation.
A Fixed-wing airplane was also provided for the search by the Civil Air Patrol. A helicopter and drone as well as search and rescue dogs are also being used in the search.
Anyone with information regarding Hembree is urged to call Teton Interagency Dispatch Center at 307-739-3301.
The park came in the news last month after the discovery of 22-year-old vlogger Gabby Petito’s remains.
Gabby was on a cross-country trip with fiancé Brian Laundrie when she went missing. Her body was found on September 19. She was strangled to death.
Laundrie’s remains were found a month later at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park, near the Carlton Reserve.
