Search continues for Frank Stanley

Special to the Daily/Robyn BrewerFrank Stanley grew up in Breckenridge.

Frank Stanley was gone for two weeks before someone reported he had disappeared after a hike up Bison Peak. But the delay wasn’t because the math teacher and soccer coach isn’t missed.

Stanley, 44, set out to summit the 12,431-foot peak on July 25. He sent a text message to a friend from the top, but has not been heard from since. Friends and family, worried that they could not contact him, reported Stanley missing Aug. 11. His blue jeep was found at the Lost Park Trail Head in the Pike National Forest.

There has not been a formal call for volunteers, but since the search along the trail began, Stanley’s students – past and present – and their parents have been combing the landscape alongside Park County Search and Rescue teams.

“My family is so overwhelmed by the outpouring of help and calls,” said his sister, Helen Stanley Baker.
