Search for Missing Man Continues

Submitted By: K2 News Desk,

A man who we reported missing earlier today, was mistaken today, as one of 3 suspects in a Teton County man hunt. Officers at Jackson lake lodge say three young men were breaking and entering into an employee dorm room  early this morning... and one of them matched the description of Aleksander Sagiev. Officials say all three subjects were found later this afternoon, and given citations... but none of the 3 were Sagiev, nor were they associated with him. Authorities confirm the two incidents are not related. A tip received by park staff this afternoon indicated that sagiev began a hike from the taggart lake trailhead monday morning, and he has not been seen since. Efforts to find him today were unsuccessful, and the search continues. Park and county officials ask anyone who may have any information on sagiev’s whereabouts to contact teton interagency dispatch center at 307-739-3301.
