Missing Since April 2009, Poet Craig Arnold Presumed Dead in Japan after Fall from Cliff

43 year old, University of Wyoming professor Craig Arnold had been missing in Japan since Craig ArnoldApril 26, 2009 as he was exploring the Japanese island Kuchino-erabu for a book he planned to write on the world’s active volcanos. It was initially though that Arnold might be injured, but still alive. However, that hope soon died once a search team announced that a trail discovered the previous day showed signs that Arnold suffered a leg injury, then fell from a steep cliff to his death soon afterward.

Award-winning poet Craig Arnold, who went missing in Japan in late April, is presumed to have died after a fall, his employer, the University of Wyoming, announced Friday. The university had established a fund to try to find Arnold after Japanese authorities ended their search.

Arnold’s footprints were found going up the path to the mouth of the inactive volcano, and in the last few days, rescue teams found his tracks near a steep incline, where he may have fallen.
