Crews searching Salmon River for two men
The Idaho County Sheriff's Office was alerted at 7:15 p.m. Sunday that 27-year-old Patrick Lusk and 35-year-old Jason Gritten did not return home as planned.
Family members said the pair had gone to French Creek area of Salmon River Road where they planned to canoe across the river and hike to Burgdorf Hot Springs.
Idaho County Corporal Jonny Wilson was dispatched to the area that night and found their vehicle. He searched the area by spotlight but did not find the men.
On Monday, Corporal Justin Scuke and two Idaho Fish and Game officers spent hours searching the Salmon River by boat. The search came up empty.

Per the article above, the upsidedown canoe was found in the river. It's possible that the two men were not wearing lifejackets. :/

That's so sad. I know it's a longshot but I was kinda hoping they were just camping/exploring off the grid or something. Seems like the ending won't be so nice now that they've found the upside down canoe.

Body of second missing camper recovered
Gritten's body was recovered on May 27.Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
"When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."
