Does anyone know why there are a lot of Sheriff's vehicles on Gibraltar Road? It looks like they're investigating something over the side of the roadway. Does anyone have info?

Golly, would that be the vehicle that's reported every few weeks, for the last year, that's always been blown off as an old accident? Noticed in the Noozhawk article that the car has been spray painted with orange paint, which signifies an acknowledged vehicle. Think someone's got some 'splaining to do....

No, that would not be that vehicle. Read the post and look at the maps. This is nowhere near the painted vehicle which is down by climbing rock.

How sad, at least this person may have a proper burial now and family can stop wondering what happened to their loved one. Rip.

Can you expand on the "car they were looking for a couple months ago"? Driver of recent wreck apparently fled scene, but emerg crews found the body & kept poking around, eventually finding old wreck belonging to missing person

Vehicle found over the roadway with human remains inside. No word yet on how old it is, could have been there for quite a while.
