Law enforcement officers, search-and-rescue personnel and volunteers are searching for a 27-year-old Park County man who has been missing since last week.

Brad Spalding, 27, was last seen at a gas station in Livingston late Wednesday night, his brother Shawn said Tuesday.

Shawn described the missing man as 6 feet, 2 inches tall, about 205 pounds, with short, dark brown or black hair and blue eyes.

Park County deputies and a Forest Service officer found Spalding’s car, a red Honda Fit, at the George Lake Trailhead Monday after receiving a tip, according to a Park County Sheriff’s Office news release.

The Park County Rural Fire Department, Livingston Fire and Rescue, Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office and the National Park Service have been involved in the search.

About 40 people in all were involved in the search Tuesday, including volunteers and crews from the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office and search and rescue team, Sweet Grass County Sheriff’s Office and search-and-rescue team and the Civil Air Patrol, according to the news release.

A helicopter and four search dog teams from Absaroka Search Dogs and Western Montana Search Dogs have also been involved.

“They haven’t seen any sign of him, haven’t seen a thing,” Shawn said at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, adding that he and his family had no idea where Spalding might have gone, but that that his brother does like to hike.

“We don’t know because he didn’t say anything about hiking to anybody,” he said. “We don’t have any idea whatsoever.”

Anyone with information about where Spalding might be is asked to call local law enforcement, the Park County dispatch center at 222-2050 or Shawn Spalding at 223-1251.
