Search underway for missing boaters at Lake Pueblo State Park

CPW News Release
CORRECTION: In the earlier release it was stated that the Pueblo Sheriff's Office and police departments could take over the case as early as tomorrow. This was a mis-statement. The statement should read that if no trace of the individuals is found, the Sheriff's office and police department could be consulted and involved as early as tomorrow, however it will remain a CPW case.

Search underway for missing boaters at Lake Pueblo State Park

PUEBLO, Colo. -- At 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, 911 dispatch transferred a call to Colorado Parks and Wildlife rangers at Lake Pueblo State Park to report a missing person.

The brother of a woman believed to have been on a fishing trip at the lake was concerned because his sister failed to return home when expected.

Shortly thereafter, at 1 a.m. Sunday morning, park rangers in three patrol boats mounted a search for the missing 57 year-old Kimberlie Temple (date of birth: 09/09/1959) and the man she was with, 61 year old Frank Montoya (date of birth: 03/14/1955).

Temple and Montoya were last seen by the aquatic nuisance species inspectors at 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning. They were boating in a 1978 17-foot Stryker.

A pickup and boat trailer presumed to belong to Montoya was found in the parking area at the south boat ramp.

Rangers stopped the initial search at 2 p.m. Sunday, and resumed searching at 9 a.m. this morning. Thus far, no other law enforcement agencies have been involved in the search, but if no trace is found, the Pueblo Sheriff's Office and police department could be consulted as soon as tomorrow.

More information will be released as it is made available.

If you have information on where these individuals or the boat was last seen, or if you see Montoya or Temple, please contact Colorado State Patrol Dispatch at (719) 544-2424.
