No sign of missing man in RMNP; Rangers find witnesses who saw Troy Green

Troy Green disappeared on Jan. 31

ESTES PARK, Colo. - A missing San Antonio, Texas man who disappeared during  a hike in Rocky Mountain National Park last week remained missing Sunday.

Troy Green, 39,  arrived at the park on Thursday then failed to show up for a conference in Denver the next day.  Park rangers found Green's rental SUV in the Bear Lake parking lot on Friday, after his Denver police issued a statewide bulletin for the missing man.

Park rangers talked to two witnesses who said they spoke with Green at about 1 p.m. on Thursday at the Bear Lake Trailhead.   From those reports and park rangers' investigation, it was determined that Green purchased additional winter gear after he arrived in Colorado.

It is believed that Green was wearing black snow pants, a black down jacket, black gloves and a black balaclava ski mask. He was also seen wearing hiking boots and a royal blue and grey Camelback watering system.

At the time the two witnesses spoke to Green at the trailhead, it was snowing and there were high winds.  They didn't know which direction he went after they talked.

Searchers and search dogs looked for Green all day on Saturday and again on Sunday without finding any trace of him.  There are numerous hiking trails that leave from the Bear Lake parking lot.
