    Body of Primland Resort guest recovered from Roaring Creek Gorge

    Patrick County Sheriff Dan Smith said his deputies along with Primland employees were looking for Bruce Rubin, 61, along the south end of Buzzards Roost Trail when they spotted the remains off of a bluff in the Roaring Creek Gorge.

    It took the deputies, search and rescue personnel and rappel teams with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management about eight hours to recover the body, but they made it out before nightfall.

    "The location where Rubin was found was not near a marked trail," said Smith.

    The elevation of that part of the trail is about 2,600 feet and the Roaring Creek that runs along the floor of the gorge is about 1,100 feet below.
    ......
    Smith said on Friday after a week of searching that his team would continue to do everything they could to find closure and on Monday night shortly before 11 p.m. Smith said he was still with the family.

    Oh my. RIP Bruce.
    I wonder what lead him several hundred feet off the trail?
    Maybe he did want to do a bit of bushwhacking and didn't see the cliff below? :(
