On Tuesday, October 10th , the search for Shuei Koto, missing since October 7th, after he left to hike and summit Missouri Peak, resumed at 0700 hours.

Chaffee County SAR utilized fixed wing aircraft outfitted with infrared technology, supplied by the Dept of Homeland Defense, avalanche dogs and handlers supplied by Monarch Mountain and Vail Mountain as well as aircraft from the Air National Guard and Flight for Life.

During the search infrared picked up on a possible small fire in the Pine Creek drainage, which is north of the Missouri Peak summit. Being alerted to this fire search crews responded to the area and located Shuei Koto, who had started the fire to stay warm. Koto was transported to the Chaffee County SAR bay in Buena Vista where he was reunited with his family. Koto was in good physical condition and did not require medical attention.

Sheriff John Spezze would like to thank Chaffee County SAR North, Lake County SAR, Summit County SAR, Monarch Mountain, Vail Mountain, Flight for Life, Reach Air Ambulance, Search and Rescue Board of Colorado, The Department of Homeland Defense and the Air National Guard for all the assistance in this search. Well over 70 personnel were involved in this search as well as countless hours of flight time logged in this effort. This was another large scale team effort that resulted in saving a man’s life. Thank You.

On 10/08/17 at approximately 2am the Chaffee County Sheriff Communication Center received a call of a possible missing hiker on Mount Missouri, which is a fourteen thousand foot peak in northern Chaffee County.

According to the caller, Shuei Pako, age 36, from Silverthorne, Colorado had summited Mount Missouri in the morning hours on October 7th and was to have returned to Silverthorne in the afternoon of the same day. Pako failed to return as was planned.

Chaffee County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the trailhead and located Pako’s vehicle. Chaffee County SAR North was notified.

An extensive search began on October 8th using Chaffee County SAR North and South, Summit SAR, Lake County SAR, as well as air support from Flight for Life, Reach Air Ambulance and the Air National Guard, H.A.T.C., based out of Eagle County. Over 45 ground searchers participated as well as 3 helicopters, however Pako was not located.

The search was suspended due to nightfall. The search is scheduled to resume on Monday, October 9th, however a large cold front with possible blizzard conditions is due to arrive in the Collegiate Peaks Range on Monday which could hamper search operations.

The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office and Chaffee County SAR will evaluate the weather conditions on Monday morning and a decision on search operations will be made at that time.

On September 8, 2017 the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Communications Center received a call of an automobile crash within the boundaries of the Buena Vista Regional Airport.

Officers responded from the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office, the Buena Vista Police Department and the Colorado State Patrol. Upon arrival officers found wreckage approximately 650 feet of the south end of the runway.

Chaffee County EMS Personnel administered first aid to the two passengers in the vehicle, however both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigation of the incident revealed that the passengers were test driving a 2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat and had permission by airport personnel to do so. The vehicle was driven by Lynd L Fitzgerald, age 71, from Colorado Springs, Colorado and the passenger was Roger Lichtenberger, age 76, from San Marcos, California. The vehicle travelled southbound on the runway at a high rate of speed. The vehicle continued off of the runway for another 314 feet and then became airborne over a ravine before striking the ground. The vehicle became airborne a second time flipping end over end over a second ravine before coming to rest on its wheels.

The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office investigated the incident with the assistance of the Colorado State Patrol.

On September 7, 2017 Verizon suffered a loss of service in Salida extending north to Buena Vista. The loss of service happened at approximately 2pm and 911 service was unavailable at that time. I personally attempted numerous calls to 911 with my Verizon phone and at no time was I able to connect to 911, Chaffee County Communications Center nor did the calls roll over to another communications center in the region.

I have been assured numerous times by Verizon Wireless that during a loss of service redundancy has been built into the system where we would be able to at the very minimum have 911 service during such outages. This is not true and at the time of this press release, 9:46 pm, I have no access to 911 services. This ranges from Salida to as far north as Nathrop. This is unacceptable.

911 services are essential for the safety of our citizens and at no time should they be compromised. I will be in touch with Verizon management in regards to this matter as this is outrageous and must be addressed.

Thank You

Sheriff John Spezze
