DOUGLAS COUNTY – Roxborough State Park is closed again today while the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers search for a missing person who may be suicidal in the park for the second day.

An announcement was sent out on social media on Monday, saying the park was closed while a search and rescue mission was being conducted. Roxborough State Park comprises nearly 4,000-acres, according to the Colorado Parks & Wildlife website.

60 searchers, six canines, two unnamed aerial vehicles, and a helicopter searched late into Monday night before suspending the search until Tuesday morning.

Roxborough State Park is famous for its red rock formations and has trails varying from a half-mile long to more than 6 miles.
