Missing hunter found
November 3, 2022
The Carbon County Coroner’s Office has confirmed the identity of the remains found on October 16, 2022 to be that of those belonging to Mark Strittmater. Mark Strittmater is the hunter who went missing on October 19, 2019 while hunting in the Sierra Madres. The confirmation was made through examination of the remains and known dental records of Mark Strittmater. This has been an ongoing case within the Sheriffs Office, and we are pleased to learn of the positive identification.
This missing person case has involved several searches in cooperation with the Carbon County Search & Rescue teams, Classic Air Medical, and Canine teams from both Carbon County and other surrounding counties. The search also employed the use of drone aircraft. We thank the tireless efforts of those involved in those searches. Carbon County’s residents continue to answer the call when there is someone in need, no matter the weather or time of day.
The remains were found in a densely wooded area approximately 325 yards from prior search areas. At this time, both the Carbon County Sheriffs Office and the Carbon County Coroner’s Office have no evidence suggesting there is foul play indicated. The Carbon County Sheriffs Office and Coroner’s Office would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Family and Friends of Mark Strittmater.
