VIDEO: Tyler Beyer, 30, has been missing since Sunday, March 12, when he headed out on a snowmobile trip northeast of Lowman.
U.S. Forest Service staff notified the Boise County Sheriff's Office on Monday, March 13, after Beyer, also a Forest Service employee on the Lowman Ranger District, didn't show up for work.
Beyer was on a snowmobile in the Lick Creek area. The Boise County Sheriff believes he could be in that area or somewhere south of Miller Mountain, since that is where he commonly rides. A hunter reported seeing Beyer on March 12. That was the last confirmed sighting.
Boise County Sheriff Scott Turner said Beyer was riding in an area that was not groomed for snowmobiling, and he was relatively new to the sport. Beyer did not have an avalanche beacon with him, Turner said, and there have been quite a few avalanches in the area.
