Ski instructor last seen at Sugar Bowl Resort FOUND

UPDATE:  2/29/16 – Carson May has been located.  Dogs were taken to the spot where Carson’s cellphone last “pinged” and found his body under 5 feet of snow.

UPDATE:  1/19/15 – Carson is still missing.  He had been skiing at the resort Thursday with his younger brother, Wyndham, but the two became separated. Carson is the son of Mike May who set the world’s speed record for downhill skiing by a blind individual. Mike received a new type of transplant and stem-cell procedure in 2000 that restored his eyesight.  He later was the subject of a 2007 book called “Crashing Through.”  Authorities are checked the cameras on the chairlifts for Carson and he was spotted getting off one around 2 p.m. on Thursday.  There is nothing showing anything further, but he was known from habit to ski to the bottom and take another chairlift up, then would ski through trees and return to his locker.

Original story:  Carson May who is 23 has been missing from the Sugar Bowl Resort in Norden, Calif. since Thursday, January 14, 2016.  He was suppose to get a ride home on Thursday but he never made it.  He was reported missing on Friday.  He was last seen at the Resort where he is a ski instructor.  All of his things were found in his locker at the resort.  The Placer County Sheriff’s Department continued a search Saturday for a missing ski instructor at Sugar Bowl Resort, with the assistance of its Tahoe Nordic Team.  A search started Saturday but ended because of avalanche danger and bad weather.  May was last seen wearing a blue Colombia jacket, bright green pants, and a blue helmet.
