Details of Disappearance

Hofflander was last seen in the rugged Windy Saddle area of Idaho County, Idaho. He and a friend were hiking there and they decided to separate and take different paths through Hells Canyon to the Snake River. Hofflander never arrived at his destination and has never been heard from again. He had his black Laborador Retriever, named Ruby, with him. Ruby was found in the woods a few days later, dehydrated but otherwise in good condition. She was located on the opposite side of the Seven Devils mountain range from where Hofflander was last seen. Searchers tried to get her to lead them to Hofflander, but with no success.

Hofflander lived in Lucile, Idaho at the time of his disappearance. He is an experienced hiker and was sufficiently prepared for an overnight trip. An extensive search turned up no sign of him; he is presumed to have become lost or injured in the wilderness.
