Summit County Search and Rescue recovers body above Pinebrook neighborhood

Jim Olsen
Summit County Sheriff's Office dispatchers sent responding officers to Canyon Drive Court in Pinebrook.

Summit County Search and Rescue responded to a report of a missing man in the Pinebrook neighborhood this morning.

The missing persons report came in at about 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, and SAR located the man at 10:30 a.m. He was a Pinebrook resident in his mid-twenties.

Summit County Sheriff’s Office confirmed he was pronounced dead on the scene. A spokesperson said the the death is not considered suspicious and the public is not in danger. The death was unrelated to weather or trail conditions, though residents in the area initially believed an avalanche was occurring as the SAR helicopter circled and whipped snow into the air.

Tuesday morning, witnesses reported seeing a SAR helicopter landing in upper Pinebrook.
