Rocky Mountain National Park’s Search and Rescue team is searching the Longs Peak area after a New Jersey man was reported missing Friday afternoon.

Ryan Albert, 30, was reported overdue to the Denver Police Department by a family member who believed he was attempting Longs Peak on Thursday, Oct. 4.

Albert’s rental car was found at the Longs Peak trailhead on Friday, but it is unknown what his planned route or destination was.

The Search and Rescue team is searching the area, including the Boulder Field, the Keyhole Route, The Loft, Chasm Cirque, North Longs Peak and Boulder Brook.

Weather on the peak is expected to be freezing temperatures today with unpredictable conditions, including snow, hail, sleet, thunder and lightening.

Albert was last seen leaving Denver Thursday morning wearing dark clothes and a backpack.

Park rangers would like to hear from anyone who has been in the Longs Peak area since Thursday, Oct. 4, or who may have had contact with Albert regarding his planned route on Longs Peak.  Please call (970) 586-1204 with information.
