Search update – Sept. 2, 2022
Day 8 of search for man presumed drowned in Fremont Lake
by Sublette County Sheriff’s Office
September 2, 2022

Today (Friday, September 2, 2022) marks the 8th day of the search for missing Pinedale resident Rick De Ruiter Zylker. Tip Top Search and Rescue (TTSAR) boat "Closure" and crew continued their search of the area surrounding Moosehead Bay with the Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV). As of 3:00pm this afternoon, searchers have been unable to locate Rick.

The area where volunteers focused their efforts over the last two days has proven to be more difficult to search due to rock fields and underwater cliffs into deeper portions of the lake. The ROV has been utilized more as the search has progressed, however it has limited visibility due to the lack of lighting at the depths being canvassed in Moosehead Bay area.

Today begins Labor Day weekend, and increased boat traffic coming onto Fremont Lake will make it difficult to continue to efficiently and safely search the lake this weekend. Tip Top Search and Rescue volunteers plan to resume the search next Tuesday, September 6th.

The Sublette County Sheriff’s Office and Tip Top Search and rescue would like to again thank the community, local businesses and Rendezvous Pointe for the continued support and lunches for our volunteer crews on this search.
