    AZ - Sarah Beadle, 38, Grand Canyon National Park, 1 Aug 2017

    38-year-old Sarah Beadle of Fort Worth had reservations to stay at the Bright Angel Campground on Tuesday, but didn’t arrive. She was hiking down the South Kaibab Trail and her backpack was found near the junction of the South Kaibab Trail and the River Trail.

    Beadle was hiking with two children – ages 10 and 11 – who are safe and accounted for.

    They say Beadle is an experienced backpacker and hiker who last hiked at the Grand Canyon in 2002.
    "She was on a trip with the kids visiting national parks, but I don't have all the details," said Beadle's older brother Charles Lawrence Springer, of the Baton Rouge area in Louisiana. "I know they had gone to Yellowstone (National Park) as well."

    Springer declined to confirm any personal details about his sister.

    I wonder if there is another person involved. Why would police withhold what the kids saw or heard unless they suspect there is foul play and the perp is the only other person who knows the details?

    I agree, something feels off about this. The kids make it back ok, but the experienced hiker didn't? And if say she fell and broke something, she didn't tell the kids what to do to get help? Don't get me wrong, I am in no way bad mouthing her, I just think she is more then simply missing.

    Press release from the Parks Service asks for anyone who saw or interacted with her to contact them. https://www.nps.gov/grca/learn/news/...and-canyon.htm

    If there had been another person with them, I think officials would be looking for that person too. Also, there's no indication police are involved, it's just search and rescue personnel. I wonder if she was having mental health issues, that could explain the reticent public statements and her abandoning the kids. Leaving her backpack there indicates she went down to the river.

    Looks like severe weather warnings are hitting the area, hopefully, she will be found before then.

    This article was updated to say that they found her deceased, possibly due to heat exhaustion.

    According to her husband Scott, Dr. Beadle was hiking in the Grand Canyon with two children, ages 10 and 11, when one of the children began feeling dizzy from heat exhaustion after running out of water. Dr. Beadle's husband says she left the children in a safe location while she went ahead to get water and help.

    "Somewhere along the trail, she made a wrong turn and got lost.," Scott says. "The Park Rangers suspect she died of heat exhaustion. Another hiker found [the children], gave them some water and escorted them to the camp.

    RIP Sarah :rose;

    So heartbreaking. She died trying to get help for her kids.

    RIP Dr. Beadle

    Lack of water is one of the most common reasons people die while hiking, especially in the Grand Canyon. What a sad story.
