Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Graying blond hair, blue eyes. Gustafson wears wire-framed eyeglasses. He has a small surgical scar on his face. Gustafson has an overbite and several fillings in his teeth, and his lower teeth are crooked.
Gustafson had been elk hunting with family members when they separated and went in different directions. He was supposed to return to camp that evening, but never arrived. His relatives fired three shots in the air when they realized he was missing and heard three shots fired in return.
However, they could not locate Gustafson, and there has been no indication of his whereabouts since then. He had gotten lost the day before his disappearance, but was found by a logger. The temperatures on the night of October 11 dipped into the thirties, and the following few days were snowy.
An extensive search of the area turned up no sign of Gustafson. He is from Minnesota and had been hunting in Medicine Bow National Forest for ten years prior to his disappearance. His family stated he was in excellent health in 2006 and had been trained in wilderness survival when he was in the Air Force. His case remains unsolved.
