LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office found a missing Glen Haven man dead Monday night, after he sent a distressing text to his family early Saturday morning.

Jerry Allbright, 53, left his Fox Creek Road home on foot on Friday evening. Early the next day, family members got a text from Allbright saying he was lost in the mountains.

The sheriff’s office said Allbright’s family searched the area and then contacted the office when they couldn’t find him.

Cell phone data indicated Allbright’s text came from an area roughly 1.5 miles west of Fox Creek Road.

The sheriff’s office said due to hazardous terrain and fading light Monday night, it wasn’t safe for the search team to remove the body. The Larimer County Coroner, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Investigators, and the ground crew planned to recover the body Tuesday morning.

The coroner will determine the cause of death.

The Estes Park Police Department is providing chaplain and family support services.
