The park officials have been searching for the person but so far there has been no clue

A Crater Lake snowshoe hiker went missing from the popular tourists sport in April 28th and the park rangers have been looking out since that day. The official of the park have stated that they received the report on 30th April, two days after the hiker actually went missing. The park authorities have given in their parts claiming to have seen the person on Monday April 28 when he first arrived and rented snowshoes to set off for a hike and take pictures. However, he never returned from his little adventure.

Soon after the report was filed, the official search began for the missing hiker around the Rim Village area. Though they couldn’t find the hiker himself but his vehicle was found close to the village. Some snowshoe tracks were also spotted by the authorities who saw these leading from the trail onto a snow cornice that had collapsed near the rim.

Unfortunately, despite the massive search efforts through air as well as on ground, there is no clue of the missing hiker. We don’t know who this missing person is because for some reason, the identity is being kept in the close. The officials at the park are also going to carry on the search via boat once it is possible. Officials say snow cornices pose a serious hazard. Cornices are formed when snow is blown over sharp terrain like the rim of Crater Lake. The snow forms an overhang with no solid ground beneath it for support. The creation of these cornices is a common sight at the Crater Lake especially at this time of the year.
