Colorado News

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — A coroner has identified human remains found in the Colorado mountains as a hiker who went missing in February.

Josh Hall, 27, of Arvada, set out with his dog Feb. 3 in the mountains west of Boulder. His family reported him missing when he didn’t return that day.

His dog, Happy, turned up on a road Feb. 11, the Boulder Daily Camera reported.

A volunteer with the Front Range Rescue Dogs organization recently found Hall’s suspected remains near a small stream. The Boulder County Coroner’s Office identified the remains as Hall’s, sheriff’s officials said Saturday.

Hall’s family released a statement thanking rescuers and others for their efforts to find him.

“There was never a point in this search when we felt that Josh was forgotten,” the statement said.
