Search teams hunt for missing Colorado snowboarder

CREEDE — Search and rescue teams are looking for a snowboarder who was last seen Saturday at the Wolf Creek Ski Area in southern Colorado.

Mineral County sheriff’s deputies say crews searched Sunday and Monday for 42-year-old Wayne Alexander Brown of Alamosa.

Another search is planned for today.

Workers at the ski area alerted sheriff’s deputies on Sunday when they noticed a car had been left in the parking lot overnight. Authorities believe Brown was snowboarding alone.

Sheriff’s spokesman Charles Downing says the weather has been bad, with 41 inches of snow falling at the ski area since Saturday.

Brown is an information technology specialist and educator at Trinidad State Junior College.
