Search in Great Sand Dunes National Park

Aircraft and dog teams are involved in the search for a missing park visitor at the Sand Dunes.

An abandoned car prompted the search. The park says it has been parked at the park’s Sand Pit picnic area parking lot along Medano Pass Primitive Road since the weekend of May 7.

The search officially got underway on Monday, May 15. Additional resources are expected to join the search today.

The search spans 14 square miles of rugged terrain in the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness Area around Mount Herard.
