SSAR Locate the Remains of a 3rd Victim

On Thursday, January 13, 2011, Superstition Search and Rescue sent in a team to work the area between Yellow Peak and the First Water Parking Lot. On Saturday, January 15, 2011, the SSAR team located the remains of a third victim about .51 miles N of Yellow Peak and Black Mesa near Second Water Canyon just above the old concrete tanks. It is quite apparent these three skeletal remains are those of the three missing Utah prospectors who disappeared July 6, 2010. The remains found on the NNE slope of Yellow Peak were found by Rick Gwynn, a local author and prospector.  Positive ID is pending until the county medical examiner make his report.
