The National Park Service said Jared Hembree of Cibolo, about 25 miles northwest of San Antonio, was found Sunday near Uhl Hill in the eastern part of the park, or just southeast of the community of Moran.

A search involving more than 80 personnel began after park law enforcement received a call expressing concern for Hembree’s welfare based on the caller’s interaction with Hembree just outside the park.

Hembree’s vehicle was found at the Game Warden Point parking area in the eastern part of Grand Teton.

Several agencies participated in the search, including the Civil Air Patrol and Wyoming Highway Patrol.
