UPDATE 7:00 am, 6/10/20: Sebastian Rodriguez Castro Search

River operations continued yesterday, with Vail Mountain Rescue (VMR) and Garfield County Search and Rescue (GCSAR) crews combing the river from the Highway 6 bridge in Eagle to Hanging Lake in Glenwood Canyon. Searchers in kayaks, boats, and the GCSAR Rescue Cat (motorized boat) made multiple laps up and down the river, checking shorelines and islands. Dog teams were also utilized, as well as an Unmanned Arial Vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone.

Search efforts will continue today.

This is a very difficult and emotional time for the family of Sebastian and the entire Eagle County community. As we continue our search, we want to remind citizens that the river is extremely dangerous and are urging everyone to leave search efforts in this area to our highly trained water rescue teams. Thank you for your continued support and patience!
