If You’re Lost On Public Lands, Who Would You Call? There’s No Guarantees

If you got lost in the wilderness would you expect to see helicopters, sniffer dogs and rescue teams searching for you? Think again. Michigan writer Jon Billman has reported all kinds of missing-in-the-wilderness stories over a 20 year career. He tells Colorado Matters about some of them, including Tennessee college student  Joseph Lloyd Keller who vanished in Colorado’s Conejos County in 2015 during a trail run. The man’s body wasn’t found until the following year.

Billman spoke with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner -see links to his reporting and listen to the conversation at cprnews.org
