Great Falls, Montana – On Friday, September 24, 2021, park officials announced that the search for Kim Crumbo at Shoshone Lake in Yellowstone National Park had moved from rescue to recovery after five days of searching.

Crumbo had been missing for a few days when his half-brother Mark O’Neill was discovered dead on the lakeshore on September 20.

Crews swept all the paths in the region, searched the whole Shoshone Lake shoreline by boat, and gridded the open water by helicopter during the last five days, but Crumbo was not found.

Sonar technology will be used by crews from the National Park Service’s Submerged Research Center to detect clues in the water.

Park search teams are continuing their search for Crumbo on foot and by boat, with the help of an interagency helicopter from Grand Teton National Park.

As conditions warrant, recovery activities will continue for the following few days.

“This incident still remains under investigation. While we cannot comment further about the specifics of this investigation, we will provide updates when appropriate to do so,” Yellowstone National Park officials stated in a news release.

Call 307-344-2428 or email yell tip@nps.gov if you have information that might help detectives piece together a timeline of events, or if you were in the Shoshone Lake region between September 12 and 19 and spotted O’Neill and/or Crumbo.
