The member of her rafting party used a satellite phone to report her missing. Park Service in the Grand Canyon have looked all over for Kaitlin Kenney, who recently turned 21. She was last seen at their river camp near Tapeats Creek on Friday. That is located on the north side of the Colorado River inside the Grand Canyon National Park.
“I realize that the Grand Canyon is huge, but it is contained,” Stephen Lewis, from Oklahoma City, said. “I can't imagine that the girl hasn't been found by now. It makes me wonder what the people that were with her did with her or what someone else in the canyon did with her.”
Park rangers have used a helicopter to try to locate Kaitlin Kenney. They have also had search and rescue teams searching on the ground. They have thoroughly searched the beaches, back-country areas as well as drainages and the accessible trains.
It is possible that Kaitlin Kenney fell into the Colorado River. Her mother stated she believed her daughter was “with the angels.” A spokesperson for the Grand Canyon National Park said that Kaitlin Kenney could not climb out by herself.
Anyone with any information about the whereabouts of Kaitlin Kenney are being asked to call the park's tip line at (928) 638-7767.
