Bonolo and Dorkteam6
Many of us are worried about two friends and cachers Bonolo (Jason) and Dorkteam6 (Chris). They left to go canyoneering and geocaching in a slot canyon in southern Utah. Bother are very experienced climbers and back country hikers/climbers.
They left on Saturday and have not been heard from since. Search and Rescue have been called out. A helicopter should be there tomorrow morning if the weather is good enough. The canyons they are going into were difficult, and dangerous in the dark.
They found one vehicle with camping equipment and an itinerary on the seat. However the person I spoke with did not know if it was theirs, or where the other vehicle was. There are many possibilities. They do not know what canyon they went into, though there is a good guess.
Please keep them in your prayers. It is cold tonight.
There is no new news yet. Hopefully weather is clear and a helicopeter can get up and check out the area.
It appears to have worked out ok. The helicopter found them, and word is they are getting them out. So there were two more than I had heard of.
Rumor has it they got stuck and tried another way out, and had no luck. More to come when available.
They are all home and warm. For those who have heard/seen the new movie 127 hours, this is in the same area.
