Meador, 74, was reported missing to the Rock Springs Police Department on October 25 after he did not return from a solo hunting trip. His unoccupied vehicle, a 2013 Chevrolet pickup, was found badly stuck just north of Pine Mountain, south of Rock Springs.

A subsequent three-day search by ground and air units was unsuccessful, as was Saturday’s search.
