A 71-year old man hunting for shed antlers is missing “in the extreme northwest corner of Moffat County,” a news release from the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office reports.
“On Thursday evening (May 6) at about 8:30 p.m., Richard McFeaters contacted local 911 advising he was lost and needed assistance,” the release states.
Both the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office and Moffat County Search and Rescue are actively looking for McFeaters.
“A cellular telephone in his possession was instrumental in narrowing the search area,” the release states. “That phone is no longer powered on, reporting on a cellular network.”
