A white water rafting guide from Maine has been missing since 8/9/09. He had rafted the canyon with other guides in the past and it is possible that he may have traveled to the area late last summer in search of a guide job. Can you please take the time to reply to the family if you have seen their son. Please pass this info on to others in the rafting community.
