Found: Everett Ruess
By Jenny Brundin
Salt Lake City, UT – Seventy-five years ago, a young explorer named Everett Ruess rode off alone into the Utah wilderness and was never heard from again. The mysterious disappearance of the 20-year-old artist and writer baffled thousands and inspired several books and a film. Recently, a team of geneticists and forensic anthropologists finally put the mystery to rest. KUER's Jenny Brundin brings us this retrospective on one of the most vexing mysteries of the West.
