    http://www.ktvq.com/news/update-mary...n-yellowstone/

    A search is under way in Yellowstone National Park for a Maryland man who has been reported missing.
    Authorities say 48-year-old Stuart Isaac of Burtonsville, Md., was reportedly on a cross country trip. His black 2009 Lexus sedan was found Sunday evening at Craig Pass along the section of the Grand Loop Road linking Old Faithful and West Thumb.

    thanks hoppy for setting it up.

    I am copying one of the news links from the support area:

    http://billingsgazette.com/news/stat...cc4c002e0.html

    Frankly, I do not see this guy as a victim of crime. it is just me or does it not seem odd to leave the family a NOTE that you've decided to take a cross country drive by yourself?

    I did not see much background info on the guy so I don't know what he was running from. I wonder if he took his laptop with him.

    Not good. Temps dropped this week and they've had snow. That's too many days for someone with no experience and no gear to be out there. Hoping that he just dumped his car and met up with someone. Otherwise, why drive all the way to Yellowstone, alone? If you're not experienced in the wilderness why would u pick that of all places to make a cross country trek to?

    Oh my. I hope this man is found. Yellowstone is so big there is no telling where he is if he wandered off on his own. There have been too many bear attacks this season for my comfort. There is a shortage of pine nuts and they are hungry. A family friend shot one a few weeks ago as it was breaking a window to enter my dbf's family home which is about 30 mins. from Yellowstone. It was the third attempt of this bear trying to get into the house where his 80+ mom lives! Anyway, I digress.

    There is a picnic area near where his car was found. Wonder if he stopped to eat or go to the rest room? Here's a link to a map of the area....

    I assume, but do not know for sure, that the National Park system can track when vehicles enter the parks. I don't know if they take any video of cars coming and going, but I'd be curious to know when his vehicle entered the park.

    Hi webrocket! You are right. A time stamped ticket is given to the tourist upon paying at the gate. There are different tickets one can purchase...1 day ticket, 3 day ticket, season pass, etc. However, tickets can be purchased at one national park and used at another.

    Example: We purchased a ticket at The Grand Canyon NP in AZ and used the same ticket at Yellowstone several days later because it was a 1 week ticket and could be used at any other national park in the US.

    I don't recall seeing cameras at the entrance boothes but that doesn't mean there aren't any. I do remember seeing them at the Old Faithful Inn but don't know if they are stationed there all the time as we visited YS one day prior to Pres Obama and family's visit so the cameras could have been placed there for security during the First Family's visit.

    I wonder if his ticket/receipt was inside the vehicle or if he had it in his wallet?

    I hope this man is found and is not a victim of some evil doer.....

    MOO wm

    I don't think he went hiking or to the bathroom. He left his car unlocked with the keys inside. Seems a bit strange to me.

    It is strange. It sounds to me like he may have pulled over to offer help to a motorist or something by him leaving his car unlocked with the keys inside. This indicates to me that he didn't plan to venture far off.

    Foul play maybe? I hope not but I can't help thinking of the prison escapees from AZ who hid out in NP's a few months ago. Heck one of them even went down to Gardiner and attended a church service,,,,which was his undoing!

    Or maybe he wanted to disappear and staged it to look that way. strange that he left a note for his family saying he was going on a cross country trip. I wonder if he had financial problems back home?

    So many questions......

    according to the news he was driving a 2009 Lexus sedan so if he left the keys in it, he either intended to abandon it or someone came along so suddenly that he had no time to grab his keys.

    while he could have been a victim of a crime, I still can't get over how someone decides on the spur of the moment to take a cross country drive and leave a note to that effect. if you have family, (and presumably a job) does one not have to make arrangements in advance?

    on another note, I'd love to know if there are any credit card records for things like meals or motels along the way. would give some indication of the pace at which he was travelling.

    I know some people get annoyed if I do not source certain things, but since no family member has been named in the media, I don't want to be the first.

    From what I can discern, Stuart Isaac was married in 1997 and was still married on the date he took his drive.

    I have not been able to find anything like facebook or linkedin for either Mr. or Mrs. Isaac so I have no idea what sort of profession he is or was in.
