Colorado Senator Mark Udall’s brother James ‘Randy’ Udall has gone missing–possibly on a solo backpacking trip through a rugged mountain range in Sublette County in Northern Wyoming. The 61-year old Carbondale resident embarked on his trip on June 20th and was scheduled to return on June 26th. Sheriff David Lankford says Udall was last seen by his family on Friday, June 28th, two days after his scheduled return. He is known to be an experienced hiker and avid outdoor enthusiast.
Sublette County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue personnel are sweeping the area with three helicopters and ground crews are searching on foot and horseback. So far no sign of the missing Senator’s brother has been found.
