Missing Person Utah Ray Humpherys
Update: Ray’s body was found in the water about a mile from the camp. The police have no explanation what happened to him but they have stated there was no foul play.
Ray Humpherys, 66, a teacher from Lehi, Utah has gone missing near Hidden Lake in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest. Ray who is from South Jordan, takes a trip near Hidden Lake every year and is familiar with the area, but he did not come back to the camp after going down to fetch water on Wednesday night.
“There’s definitely someone like him, who has a lot of outdoors experience, as we understand from some of the family this is his 29th year being up in that area. You know, it’s definitely possible for someone to survive this long, especially if they use their natural resources,” the Summit County Sheriff told Deserert News.
Searchers have been looking for Ray since Sunday.
Humpherys was last seen wearing a gray ball cap, a black vest, a gray shirt with tan pants. He was dressed for cold weather, possibly wearing a black jacket or a blue hoodie.
Anyone with information about Humpherys should call the Summit County Sheriff’s Office at (435) 615-3600.
