41 year old Gerald Myers of Centennial, CO is missing on Alaska’s Mount McKinley. Gerald Myers was last seen Wednesday, 5/21/09, as he climbed the ridge approaching McKinley’s 20,320-foot summit. Myers began his solo climb to the summit of Mount McKinley on Tuesday.

A team traveling about two hours behind Myers did not see any signs of the man. He had skis with him, but little survival gear.

Aerial searches are underway for the missing Colorado chiropractor.  

He did not return to the camp at 14,200 feet, where his climbing partners were waiting. They said Myers took no sleeping bag, bivouac sack, stove to melt snow or thermal pad with him when he attempted to summit.

At the time, weather high on the mountain was deteriorating with winds gusting 40 to 50 mph.

Searchers did not know what route he planned to take down from the summit. Park rangers were using spotting scopes to look for him along the various descent routes.
