May 16 Update

Thanks to a northbound CDT hiker who called the authorities, Steve’s body
was recovered yesterday at the remote Lagunitas Campground in Carson National Forest. Here is a news report with the basics.

An investigation is underway, so we will provide details as we get them. We
have been told that there is no evidence of foul play and that Steve was at
the campground for quite a while before he died.   We hope the investigation
will give us insight into what happened and maybe ways to prevent something
like this from ever happening again.

Our deepest thanks to everyone who has stuck with us through these last five
months. We couldn’t have gotten through this awful, surreal experience
without the huge support we have received.

Please share so everyone knows he has been found. We will write more as we
get more information.
