    Search and rescue responded, searched but didn't find anyone and there were no other calls made that day about a missing rafter.

    I agree, GigTu. Normally, it seems pretty obvious if someone falls in the river they are not likely to survive but why didn't his friends report him missing right after it happened? Why didn't search and rescue run into the friends or the caller at the river when they went to search the first time? :thinking:

    Fremont County deputies received a phone call July 8 from a family wanting to report that Eric Ashby, 31, of Colorado Springs was missing after the family received information from friends that Ashby was in a river accident June 28.

    So "friends' call to inform the family
    Does the family know who they are?
    How do the friends explain walking away and not reporting an accident?
    Doesn't make sense

    My deepest sympathy to his family
    I have a difficult time accepting that adults were "in Fear" to the point of not reporting an accident. Its wrong on so many levels
    Whatever JMO

    My feelings, exactly. What would they be afraid of? Getting a ticket for boating without life-vests? :confused: I wonder how close these "friends" are...

    I am relieved to see that the person who called was identified as "a photographer" because that means LE know who the reporting individual is, whereas early in this story it sounded like maybe someone called and reported it anonymously. I also hope he caught some photos of what happened or at least photos of the guys on the river to prove they were all there. Still, this just whole thing stinks! :moo:

    Thanks. I edited my posted to take out the part about their age. I don't mean to level blame at them, but it just makes no sense! Were they boating under the influence or something and didn't remember until a week later that Eric fell in the river? I'm baffled! :gaah::scared:

    Eric Ashby, 31, decided to search the Arkansas River for the treasure, which was written about in a book, but disappeared while rafting near the Royal Gorge Bridge in June.

    Apparently Ashby was in an accident and fell into the water, but no one knew to look for him until his family reported him missing more than a week later.

    “We have a great group of professional raft operations. We’ve got a great railroad. They’re up and down that river almost on an hourly basis,” said Patrick Caulfield, with Fremont County Search and Rescue.

    Two other Coloradans have died while searching for this same treasure, including Grand Junction pastor Paris Wallace and Randy Bilyeu of Broomfield.
