Woman Missing In Grand Canyon For Three Days, Her Mother Fears The Worst

A woman missing in the Grand Canyon since Saturday remains lost, and, as authorities in Colorado scale back their search, the woman’s mother fears the worst.

The missing woman, 21-year-old Katilin Anne Kenney, was last seen on Friday at a camp bear Tapeats Creek on the northern side of the Colorado River. She was there as part of a private river trip through Grand Canyon National Park, The Associated Press reported.

The woman was reported missing in the Grand Canyon on Saturday, and, since then, crews have searched both by air and on the ground for Kenney.

After the search for Kenney yielded no clues, park spokeswoman Shannan Marcak said that authorities have decided to scale back their search for the woman missing in the Grand Canyon, a report Monday from The Associated Press noted. She added that the search will continue, though in a “limited mode in which rangers and pilots will continue to search for clues when in the area.”

The mother of the woman lost in the Grand Canyon appears to have lost hope in her recovery, TheDenverChannel reported.

“Please say a prayer for our family. Our sweet Kaitlin is with the angels,” Linnea Kenney posted on her Facebook page Monday morning. “She was our balloon let loose in a room and lived life to it’s fullest, always with a smile. We were blessed to have her in our lives.”

Authorities are still continuing their search for the woman missing inside the Grand Canyon. They have put flyers with her picture and description at popular river launch and takeout points.
