Craig Man Disappears in Western Colorado Desert
The Mesa County Sheriff's Office reports a man from Craig is missing, possibly in the desert, after failing to return home on Saturday.
Mesa County Sheriff's Deputies are searching for 43-year-old Scott Burke who lives in Craig.
Burke left on Friday (September 23) with plans to camp in either the North Desert area off of 16 Road or the Bookcliff area west of DeBeque. He was supposed to return home Saturday.
Burke has not been in contact with family or friends since leaving on Friday. He is 5-feet 11-inches tall, weighs 175 pounds, and has brown hair and green eyes.
Burke was driving a white and blue Ford Bronco (similar to the one pictured) with oversized tires and a cattle guard on the front.
Mesa County Sheriff's Deputies are flying over the areas this afternoon (September 26) in an attempt to get a better idea of Burke's possible location.
If you were in any of these areas and saw either Burke or his vehicle you are asked to call (970) 242-6707.
