Still no sign of New Castle woman missing in Utah
December 3, 2008
SALT LAKE CITY ” Searchers have been unable to locate the New Castle, Colo. woman who disappeared in the canyons of eastern Utah last month.
Eight searchers scoured Little Wild Horse Canyon on Tuesday for signs of 54-year-old Rose Backhaus. Backhaus was last seen on Nov. 16, when she checked out of a Moab hotel and was seen leaving the parking lot at the canyon trailhead.
Her SUV was found at the trailhead, some 70 miles west of Moab, on Nov. 24.
Emery County Sheriff Lamar Guymon says he is considering halting the search for a few days while investigators travel to Colorado to interview the woman’s friends and family again.
Little Wild Horse Canyon is west of Goblin Valley State Park in the San Rafael Swell area.
