    Scent tracking horses? Interesting!

    Search manager Jeff Hasse said from his home in Minnesota Friday that horses trained in scent tracking are a relatively new addition to search efforts. "Horses are very aware of what's unusual in the environment," he said.

    The horses can pick up scents circulating too high above the ground for dogs to pick them up. The dogs, on the other hand, will be particularly useful searching the many caves in the area where Bushling went missing.

    Sometimes they just pop in to say 'Hey, I haven't found my way back yet.' Well, Joseph Bushling, you aren't forgotten.

    I remember reading about his case years ago. I don't think he is still alive sadly.

    Missing in Utah: The mysterious disappearance of Army Spec. Joseph Bushling | ABC4 Utah
    [...]

    In May, 2011, Army Specialist Joseph Bushling was headed to his new assignment at Ft. Carson Colo.

    [...]

    Joseph Bushling had been stationed at Tooele County army site for about a year. Kevin Bushling said prior to heading to the airport, his son went on a drive, ran out of gas, and called a soldier at Dugway.

    “They spoke on the phone for about four minutes and to this date, there’s no evidence that has been turned up other than the car he was driving and the baseball cap he was wearing,” said Bushling in a 2011 interview.

    A Tooele County search and rescue member found Bushling’s car in an isolated area of the Dugway range in a ravine about 64 road miles from Dugway, according to an ABC4 report in 2011.

    After arriving at Dugway, Bushling was told his son went AWOL, away without leave.

    [...]

    It was 2012 when searchers found the vehicle and Bushling’s cap. It was about 34-miles south of Dugway. But they also came across something else.

    “We did find some clothes articles and there were some bones that were found that were turned over to Tooele County,” Kurt Hadfield, one of the organizers of the search, told ABC4 in 2012.

    But months later, they learned the bones weren’t those of Bushling, but from an animal.

    From that point on, Bushling claimed the army wouldn’t offer anything of substance about his missing son.

    [...]

    An attempt to reach the U.S. Army public relations was unsuccessful. A spokesman for the sheriff’s office said the case is still active, but there are no new developments.
