Search Continues for Yellowstone Nat'l Park Employee

Posted: Updated:
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK -

Day two of the search is underway for a Yellowstone National Park employee who was swept down the Yellowstone River Monday evening.

22-year-old Darien Latty and two other concession employees went floating down the Lamar river on Monday, but only Latty did not make it out of the rushing water.

Floating down the river is prohibited by park regulations. Al Nash, Yellowstone Chief of Public Affairs, says the river where Latty was last seen has the potential to pick up steam.

"The Lamar is fairly quiet this time of year but it flows into the Yellowstone River which is a much faster river, there are rapids and there are falls."

Latty is originally from Demorest, Georgia and currently works at a concession at the Roosevelt Lodge. The search for the 22-year old began Tuesday with 50 people on the lookout, but today Nash says the search has intensified into a full force effort.

"We have dog teams, several different ground teams, and a helicopter that is searching the Yellowstone River corridor from Tower Junction down to the community of Gardiner."

Darien Latty is about 5'7 and 140 pounds. Anyone with information regarding Latty's whereabouts can contact the Yellowstone National Park at 307-344-2642.
