Authorities search for missing skier

Posted

Taos County Sheriff’s deputies, along with Taos Ski Valley authorities and other agencies, are searching for a man reported last seen on Jan. 2.

Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said in a statement that the Taos County Sheriff’s Office took a report on Jan. 6 when the family of 72-year-old John McCoy reported they had not heard from him for several days.

McCoy, from Maryland, frequents the Taos area and is a recreational skier, Hogrefe said.

Deputies went to McCoy’s seasonal residence in the El Prado area but did not locate McCoy or his vehicle.

Working with Taos Ski Valley officers and other agencies, deputies located McCoy’s blue Subaru parked in one of the Taos Ski Valley parking lots. His season ski pass had been scanned on Jan. 2 but his whereabouts cannot be accounted for since that day, Hogrefe said.     

McCoy has not yet been located and he is entered into the National Database for missing persons.  “We fear the worst could have happened and collectively are still looking for Mr. McCoy,” Hogrefe said.

If anyone has information they are urged to contact the Sheriff’s Office through Taos Central Dispatch at (575) -758-2216.
