The Missoulian - "Missoula County Sheriff Mike McMeekin said the man, identified as Chris Spurgin of Missoula, was located by ground search crews near the top of Lolo Peak at 9:20 a.m.Chris was 38 and single. To my knowledge, never married and had no children. His skis were found at the top of a ledge. He apparently took them off to look over the edge, and fell.
'They located his skis first, and then found his body nearby,' said McMeekin, who said the cause of Spurgin's death was as yet unclear.
Search and rescue crews from Missoula County, together with a helicopter search crew from Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls, spent all day Thursday searching for the man, who was first reported missing on Wednesday night after he failed to show up at work (in the Radiology Department of St. Patrick's Hospital). Search and rescue crews from Ravalli County joined the effort on Friday."
