Grand Teton scales back search for missing man

JACKSON (WNE) — After six days of intense aerial and ground searching for missing hiker Cian McLaughlin, Grand Teton National Park officials said late Friday they will scale back their efforts.

“The search for McLaughlin will shift tactics to a continuous, but limited mode,” a press release from the park said on Friday evening, the tenth day the 27-year-old had been missing. “New clues will be investigated as they come forward. Park staff will continue to patrol the backcountry and search for signs of McLaughlin’s whereabouts.”
