YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK — Search and rescue crews are looking for an Ogden man missing after a backcountry trip at Yellowstone National Park.

Kim Crumbo, 74, was on a four-night camping trip at Shoshone Lake with his half-brother, Mark O'Neill, 67, of Chimacum, Washington, National Park officials said in a news release.

The brothers were reported overdue by a relative on Sunday. Park crews found a vacant campsite with the men's gear on the south side of the lake that day, as well as personal belongings on the east shore of the lake.

On Monday, crews found the body of O'Neill along the shore.

Search and rescue crews continue to search by ground Tuesday in the area for Crumbo. A Grand Teton National Park interagency ship and crew are also assisting with air operations, officials said.

Both O'Neill and Crumbo were described as National Park Service retirees, and Crumbo is a former U.S. Navy Seal.
