Body found in Colorado River more than two weeks after man, dog with homemade raft went missing in Grand Canyon

The body of a New Mexico Man was found in the Colorado River in Grand Canyon National Park, more than two weeks after he disappeared with his dog, authorities announced Monday.

National Park Service personnel were notified Friday of the discovery of a body in the river. Authorities said the body resembled that of Thomas L. Robison, 58, of Santa Fe.

Park officials said Robison allegedly attempted to go down the river with his dog on a wooden raft. Authorities previously released a photo of the raft Robison allegedly used, showing just a few long boards strung together, along with a paddle and a life vest.

Robison had abandoned his vehicle at Lees Ferry, a fishing and boat launching point in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. The site is often used as a launching point for whitewater rafting trips along the Colorado River and through the Grand Canyon, according to park officials.

The Coconino County Medical Examiner will confirm the positive identification of the body.

The National Park Service and medical examiner’s office are investigating.

The raft is believed to have been built by Robison.

The Colorado River stretches nearly 1,500 miles from the Rocky Mountains to Mexico, according to American Rivers, a site that lists information about the country’s waterways. In the Grand Canyon, the river continues to deepen and widen in this national monument, according to the NPS. Whitewater rafting is common in the river.
