UPDATE: One missing Coeur d'Alene man found in Salmon River, one still missing

Posted By on Thu, May 28, 2015 at 11:05 AM

Family and friends of Jason Gritten found his body in the Salmon River Wednesday night, according to the Idaho County Sheriff's Office. Gritten, 35, and Pat Lusk, 27, went missing during a camping trip the weekend of May 15. Family reported the men missing when they didn't return Sunday evening. 

Gritten's body was found near the Spring Bar, nine miles from where authorities believed the men tried to cross the river. Lusk still hasn't been found. 

The Sheriff's Office searched for three days last week, but suspended their efforts when the only traces of the Coeur d'Alene men were a wooden paddle and tracks to and from a nearby hot spring. Sheriff Doug Giddings told the Coeur d'Alene Press that a cadaver dog had a "hit" last Friday, but the river was too fast and muddy to send divers in.
