    CO - Michael Rust, 56, Saguache County, 31 March 2009

    http://www.krdo.com/Global/story.asp?S=10124414

    3 April 09

    There's still no sign of a missing Saguache man. 56-year old Michael Rust hasn't been seen since Tuesday.

    Rust is a Colorado Springs native. His brother says he may have been looking for burglars when he went missing. "He came back home at around 7 o'clock and someone had broken into his place and evidently he decided to go try and track them down cuz I guess there were motorcycle tracks that he could see in the snow and dirt" says Carl Rust.

    Two other brothers have joined Saguache County authorities in the search off Highway 285 North of Saguache. Carl says his brother Mike is an avid mountain biker who once owned a bike shop in Salida and helped start the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame.

    Mike Rust is 5-foot 9-inches tall, 140-pounds with gray hair and blue eyes. He was riding a red and white Honda trail bike. Call the Saguache County Sheriff's Office at (719) 655-2544 if you have any information.

    Missing man investigation continues
    Saguache County investigators working the disappearance of Michael Rust collected evidence from a motorcycle found May 4 and are awaiting results of tests.

    A family camping in the Cotton Creek area south of Villa Grove found the motorcycle at the bottom of a steep, rocky embankment and reported it to authorities.

    Werts denied rumors circulating through Salida that investigators found Rust's body when they found the motorcycle.

    "The rumors are not true," Werts told The Mountain Mail Tuesday.

    "The case file on this is 2 inches thick," he said.

    Mechanical tests on the motorcycle are scheduled to be conducted by a Colorado State Patrol technician, Werts said.

    Family of Missing Man Still Looking for Answers


    A Colorado Springs family tells 11 News human remains found in Pueblo over the weekend are not those of their loved one.

    Paul and Carl Rust spoke with an 11 News reporter Thursday morning. They told us they've accepted the fact that their brother is dead and are just looking for an answer.

    They were hoping the remains were that of their missing brother, 56-year-old Mike Rust. But around 1 p.m. Thursday, they received a call from the family's private investigator saying the coroner had identified the human remains and they weren't Mike Rust

    Rust disappearance is no cold case
    Posted: Wednesday, Mar 31st, 2010

    SAGUACHE — The BLM dirt road off of the highway is filled with bumps and gullies. The chico country is rough and dry and doesn’t seem to provide many landmarks, but to Saguache county lawmen every bump is familiar because BLM Road 5300 leads off of Highway 285 to the residence of Michael Rust.

    Persistent investigator pursues Rust killers

    http://www.alamosanews.com/v2_news_a...story_id=18425

    Posted: Saturday, Oct 23rd, 2010
    By RUTH HEIDE Courier editor

    SAGUACHE — Investigator Jerry Mosier refuses to give up the search for his friend Mike Rust’s killers.

    Mosier has been on the trail of Rust’s assailants and presumed killers since Rust’s disappearance more than a year and a half ago. Although evidence has been found that suggests Rust, 56, died at the hands of attackers near his Saguache County home, his body has never been recovered.

    Valley cold cases haunt law enforcement

    “Their voices may now be silent...those who may know the truth are not.”

    The motto of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Cold Case Unit is the only hope for families and friends looking for closure when a murder remains unsolved or a missing person is not found.

    [snip]

    One of the missing persons, Michael Damian Rust, 55, is suspected to be a murder victim, Norris said.

    Rust was last heard from on March 31, 2009, at about 7 p.m., when he called his girlfriend and told her his home had been burglarized. He took off on his motorcycle to see if he could find the culprit and was never heard from again.

    A blood-stained vest was found near his house. The blood was tested and DNA results came back a positive match to Rust. His motorcycle was found several weeks later about 20 miles from his home.

    RUST ON THE BIG SCREEN
    By David Howard
    Want to know more about Rust? Filmmakers Nathan Ward and Sam Bricker recently completed an hour-long documentary, "The Rider and the Wolf," delving deeper into Rust's life and disappearance. Ward says the movie, shot on a Red Epic 4K, combines elements of traditional documentary filmmaking with more creative components such as reenacted scenes. The bike scenes were shot on trails Rust helped create, on bikes he was involved in designing.The filmmakers plan to premier "The Rider and the Wolf" in January at a site they had not yet determined as of press time. They plan to build an audience through traditional channels like mountain- and bike-oriented film festivals, plus embark on grassroots efforts such as a barnstorming tour of Rocky Mountain bike towns. To learn more about the movie, find showtimes, and watch the trailer, go to riderandwolfmovie.com.
    Mike will have been missing for five years on Monday.

    Investigators are trying to determine the identity of human remains discovered in rural Saguache County last week. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation officials confirm with CBS4 their team assisted in the recovery of human remains located between Highways 17 and 285 located in Saguache County...

    But many people in the part of rural Southwest Colorado believe the remains could belong to Mike Rust, a mountain biking pioneer who disappeared in 2009. Rust’s family hopes the discovery will bring them some closure. Rust vanished after a burglary at his home. “Mike caught up to whoever these guys were and there was some kind of an altercation and he took the bad end of it,” a friend of Rust’s told CBS4 last April.
