23 Year Old Autistic Man Missing From Hebgen Lake FOUND In West Yellowstone


Early Monday morning, the Gallatin County ’s Office received a call regarding a missing autistic 23 year-old male who had apparently walked away from his family’s cabin in the area of the Rainbow Point Campground at Hebgen Lake.  The subject was last seen around 8:00 p.m. the previous evening when he had told his family he was going to bed.  He was found to be missing at approximately 11:20 p.m.

After a search of their own, the family called emergency services and reported the subject missing. A Gallatin County Deputy, acting as incident coordinator, and the West Yellowstone section of the Gallatin County Search and Rescue initiated a search in the Rainbow Point area.

At approximately 07:25 a.m., as resources were gearing up, a West Yellowstone searcher located the subject near the town of West Yellowstone.  The subject was found to be in good condition and was returned to his family.

Sheriff Gootkin would like to remind everyone to make sure to call law enforcement before a situation gets too bad or complicated.  Getting the expedited assistance could be just the difference needed to locate a family member quickly and safely.
