Kenney was last seen Friday night with a group at a river camp located near Tapeats Creek on the north side of the Colorado River.

Rangers used the park’s helicopter to search the river corridor and area trails for two days after Kenney was reported missing. Ground-based search and rescue teams also thoroughly searched the accessible trails, beaches, drainages and backcountry areas in the vicinity.

With no additional clues to guide search efforts on land, the decision was made to scale the search back. Rangers and pilots will continue to search for clues, and flyers with Kenney’s picture and description remain posted at popular river trip launch and takeout points.

Kenney is from of Englewood, Colo.

Anyone who may have information regarding her whereabouts is asked to call: Grand Canyon National Park tip line at 928-638-7767.
