Park Rangers are seeking additional leads to aid in the search for a missing hiker, 37-year-old Joseph Patrick Leap, from Lakewood, CO. Mr. Leap is overdue from a solo day hike out of Cedar Grove in Kings Canyon National Park. Mr. Leap planned to hike from Roads End to Mist Falls and Paradise Valley, and return to Roads End the same day.

Mr. Leap planned on departing for his hike on Sunday morning, October 29 from the Roads End Trailhead where his vehicle has been located. He is described as an experienced hiker, but not familiar with the area.

Personnel from the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks Search and Rescue Team are currently conducting ground and aerial search operations. If you have any information, please contact the park at 888-677-2746 with your name, contact information, and additional details.

Ok, maybe I got this wrong but this one really ... well... boils me...

What I was told is this guy is notorious for not filling out a permit...

And he went on an overnight trip when he said he was doing a dayhike.
I hope he got a nice bill.

Fill out a friggin SELF REGISTRATION permit or don't tell people you're
doing a dayhike and then do an overnight.

If I'm wrong I'll apologize. If not... then

Hello... Park Service... this is a teachable moment as Bearproof would say.



Chick-on is looking at you!

We talked to a Kings Canyon employee before doing a small
overnight backpack from Big Meadow(s) thru Jennie Lake(s)
to Roaring River... over Avalanche Pass ... out Roads End...
Things matched up. I could be wrong though.

Searched on z web and found no details... only "yeah... found!"
