UPDATE 6:00pm 6/8/20: Sebastian Rodriguez Castro Search

UPDATE 6:00pm 6/8/20: Sebastian Rodriguez Castro Search

Vail Mountain Rescue ran five search trips down the river in rafts earlier today, followed by searchers in kayaks this afternoon. Unfortunately, they were unable to locate any additional clues that might help locate the 3-year-old-boy. The search is slow and time consuming, as evidenced by these photos, which show the types of river hazards they have encountered over the past several days. Additionally, they have identified approximately 10 spots where conditions are too dangerous, and can only be searched once river levels have subsided.

Tomorrow morning, a dog team will be deployed to conduct searches on several sections of the river as well. No land-based searches will be taking place.
