Details of Disappearance Schrup was last seen by his father in New Mexico on July 11, 2009. On August 8, his vehicle was found abandoned on Shrine Pass Road in Eagle County, Colorado. It was covered with dust and pine cone needles, and authorities determined it had been there since at least July 22.
There was a handwritten journal inside the vehicle; the last entry read, "About to hike a hill. See you after." Schrup has never been heard from again and an extensive search of the area turned up no indication of his whereabouts.
A handgun was initially thought to be missing from the vehicle; Schrup always carried the gun when he was hiking. However, when the car was released to his family in 2011, they found the "missing" gun concealed inside it. Schrup's disappearance remains unsolved.
