Missing Northern Arizona University Hiker
It is with great sadness that I report that a body of a male hiker was located in the area the Bryce was hiking in. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family as well as a deep sadness that the world has lost another bright shining star, taken before he could make his mark.
Bryce is a NAU student who is a friend to my daughter's co-worker and friend. He went hiking on Saturday to the Deer Creek/Thunder River area of Grand Canyon National Park, with the intent to return home on Monday. Search and rescue crews are still looking for him. Please say a prayer for the safe return of Bryce to his friends and family.
