60-year-old Stephen Coleman of Portland, Maine, was last seen on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park on December 20th, 2020. He left his belongings with a friend before heading into the canyon, and he never returned to retrieve them. The National Park Service believed he was traveling alone into the canyon and is a transient in the Arizona area.

The National Park Service was not notified of Coleman’s disappearance until a few days ago. A missing person search started Saturday, February 6th.

Coleman was located outside of the park on Sunday, February 7th, at approximately 12:00 PM — 49 days after being last seen. The National Park Service did not release details of Coleman’s disappearance or where exactly he was found, although they confirmed he is in good health.
