Details of Disappearance

Uhl disappeared from Priest Lake, Idaho on September 21, 2010. He has never been heard from again and an extensive search turned up no sign of him. On October 8, his pickup truck was found on Wigwam Trail on the south side of a mountain in Priest Lake State Park. Inside it was a half-full cup of coffee.

The Department of Lands employee who initially noticed the vehicle thought nothing of it at the time and it wasn't until October 26, after it was reported as abandoned, that it was connected with Uhl.

Authorities believe Uhl, an avid hunter, became lost or injured while hiking in the area. His case remains unsolved.
