Search continues for missing 8 year old boy 

The search is focused along the Teller and Fremont county lines, just north of Canon City. The child disappeared in an area known as “Cactus Cliff”, a place lined with steep limestone cliffs. The steep cliffs are of the biggest concerns for rescuers. They’re worried he may have slipped and fallen hundreds of feet, but they also say they hold out hope that he may be safely tucked away in a cave.
