A multi-day, multi-agency search ended on Wednesday, with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office reporting that 19-year-old Samuel Greenwald has been located and is safe.

Greenwald was reported missing on Monday, July 20, after leaving for a run to the top of Greenhorn Mountain near Rye, Colorado. According to a Facebook post from his mother, he was running the Bartlett Trail – a 10.2 mile out-and-back trail with 2,949 feet of elevation gain. The trail has been reported to be faint and overgrown in sections by users of the popular hiking website Alltrails.

Details about where the teen was found and what led to his discovery haven't been publicly released. The mountain that Greenwald was reported to be missing on reaches an elevation of 12,352 feet above sea level.

Anytime you're planning to go on a solo adventure in Colorado, it's important to let someone know where you're headed and when you'll be back. This can be crucial when it comes to getting search and rescue crews on the hunt sooner than later.
