UPDATE: Missing campers found safe

Kayden Cook, 8
UPDATE!!! MESA COUNTY, Colo. The missing campers arrived home safe just before 9:00 am this morning. The two ended up camping an extra night in Montrose County, not in the Glade Park area as originally thought.

It is always a good idea to keep loved ones informed of travel, camping, and/or hiking plans. If those plans change, make sure to get a message to them with the updated information.

Thank you to everyone who helped send in tips during this search.

They left in a white 2011 Ford Ranger with temporary tags and a front tag from "Drive Time" car sales. The truck is a single cab and does not have a topper, it is in good condition.

Mesa County Sheriff's Deputies along with the Mesa County Search and Rescue Team have spent Sunday night thoroughly combing the areas of Glade Park and most of the Colorado National Monument. All of the area hospital have been checked as well. Jackson has a history of changing his mind about where he's going while he's en route. He has no phone.

If anyone sees the vehicle or the two missing persons please call 911 immediately. If you are out of cell phone range, make note of the time and location then call as soon as you can.
