If you got lost in the wilderness would you expect to see helicopters, sniffer dogs and rescue teams searching for you? Think again. Michigan writer Jon Billman has reported all kinds of missing-in-the-wilderness stories over a 20 year career. He tells Colorado Matters about some of them, including Tennessee college student Joseph Lloyd Keller who vanished in Colorado's Conejos County in 2015 during a trail run. The man's body wasn't found until the following year.
