Search and rescue crews continue to look for Drake Kramer, 21, of San Antonio, Texas, who was reported missing by family this past Monday.
More than 40 National Park Service personnel are assigned to the search for Kramer. Over the past several days, search teams have walked dozens of miles along the rim of the canyon, traversed the edge of canyon walls, and in some instances completed technical rappelling searches over the edge. Search and rescue crews continue to make use of the park helicopter to provide additional search coverage from the air.
Kramer was reported missing on February 2nd. His last known location was at the Bright Angel Lodge on the South Rim. He checked out on the morning of February 1st. He is 5’7” tall, weighs 140 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes. Although searchers don’t know what he was last wearing, it’s known that he favors dark-colored clothing and typically wears a backwards baseball hat or a bandanna.
Anyone who may have had contact with or has information Kramer’s location should contact the National Park Service Silent Witness Line at 928-638-7840.
