Recovering Lurker
Park rangers were unable to recover the body of a 23-year-old man who went missing Tuesday in Norris Geyser Basin, one of the park’s hottest thermal areas.

A man is his early 20s was feared dead after wandering off a designated walkway Tuesday in Yellowstone National Park and falling into a hot spring, authorities said.

Park rangers hadn’t found the man as of late Tuesday and considered the incident a probable death, reported the Casper Star-Tribune, citing a statement from park officials.

Earlier in the day, Charissa Reid, a Yellowstone spokeswoman, told The Huffington Post by phone that recovery efforts were underway.

“All we know is that there is a person in the hot springs,” Reid said. “It’s a pretty dynamic situation.”
