Missing Ohio Teen’s Hiking Boot Found in Grand Teton National Park

Searchers found a hiking boot belonging to an Ohio girl who went missing in Grand Teton National Park the previous day.

Park officials said 16-year-old Fauna Jackson's boot was found Friday, but they do not believe the girl was wearing it when she disappeared Thursday morning. More than 115 people joined in the search for the teen on Friday, which involved dogs and helicopters.

Jackson, from Cincinnati, is part of a youth volunteer conservation corps called Groundwork USA. She was in Grand Teton this week helping to reroute a trail in the Triangle X Ranch area. Co-workers say she took a break while working on the trail and hasn't been seen since.

The search will continue on Saturday to include ATV patrols and help from the Wyoming Civil Air Patrol.
