Thank you.

We'll keep our eyes open. Good feedback for you - the notice is definitely getting around. I heard about it via my wife just earlier today. She saw it on a facebook note. Our hearts are with you man. Good luck.

Thanks for your reply. It gives us hope. We are talking to local media outlets, the police, and a P.I.. The more local people helping to look for him will help. His black honda 2 door accord has a bike rack on it (see above pic). Other bikers may have seen him or ridden with him. He has an orange painted SS and I believe a black Intense FS bike.

Thanks.

These are the trails Jeremy frequents:

Waterton Canyon 470 meets I-25
Deer Creek
Matthew Winters-red rocks
Lair of the bear
Mount Falcon
Golden-White Ranch
Boulder-Walkers Ranch

He's an avid outdoorsman (biking, fly fishing, and hiking). Lately, he had been spending a lot of time driving up to Steamboat Springs. As far as we can tell, all his gear is in his apartment. Only things missing are his car, cell and his wallet. He hasn't used his cell or CC since 4/11.

Yes his bikes are at home...He recently started to do some running which is why the original poster made this thread. Some other trails to keep an eye on would be:

Hall Ranch
Picture Rock
Centennial Cone
Indian Creek/Roxborough

Thanks for your help.

Good update on this case...

There's a good update on this case on the Victim's Heartland site.

If they can find the final location it will be posted there and we'd like anyone and everyone that likes to ride mtn bikes to go out there and ride your butts off and look for him. Please tell all your friends!

Follow this link.

Thanks!

It's on the west side of Woodland Park off Hwy 67. But that doesn't mean much.

If a tower has a range of ~35KM and it pinged for 26 minutes, that almost indicates he was still in his car, moving, and probably on 24 going up to Rampart Res., which the posters also said was one of his favorite places to ride/run.

If he did go to Rampart then the last pings could be from the towers on the AFA which is why AT&T doesn't want to release the coordinates. ???

11 Mile Res. is also @35Km from the first towers coordinates.

Our prayers are with you. I was going out riding anyway, So maybe I'll go for Rampart tomorrow a.m.?

this is a copy of a post made on Victim's Heartland site:

told me as closely as I can repeat it. My comments are in parenthesis.

"In summary, as was posted previously, they localized the last identifiable cell tower with the help of a detective from the Westminster Police Department.

(This tower was mentioned previously and is here: "(Google Maps))

Unfortunately, an additional tower picked up Jeremy's cell phone 26 minutes later. This tower is unidentifiable according to AT&T (his service provider). The ID number is "LAC 15201". At this point, his phone continued to periodically try to retrieve data until sometime on Wed when it presumably ran out of battery power. We believe this is where Jeremy and his phone came to rest and if we could identify the tower, we'd be within a 15 mile radius.

Roughly 25 people showed up in Woodland Park, including locals, to take up the search this morning (Sat 17th). One of the search party members came up with the idea of driving from the last known tower in the direction where he'd most likely lose service for 26 minutes. Two search parties, each with AT&T cell phones, drove in broad loops in the SW and NW directions for 4 ½ hours. The parties tried to create a breadcrumb trail of cell phone contacts in the most likely direction. To do this, each AT&T phone sent text messages every 4 to 5 minutes to another cell phone in the car and wrote down the mile marker and time. Our hope was that one of the phones would have pinged that final unknown tower (LAC 15201) and we'd be able to correlate the time to where we were on the road.

The Teller County Sherriff graciously contacted AT&T to run the other to phone logs. Unfortunately, AT&T would not release the phone records even though both cell phone holders gave permission….!!!??? AT&T replied that they could not do this because the lives of those phone holders were not in danger…!!!??? Unfortunately, we hit a roadblock.

The parties then contacted the Westminster Police Department where jurisdiction exists and the original phone logs were retrieved. To retrieve Jeremy's phone log the night before, they had to persist in their efforts for 4 hours to prompt the police to help. Returning calls to the PD this time met a dead end because, according to the police, a subpoena for the AT&T info cannot be issued due to the fact that this is unlikely a criminal case…

Currently (Sat night) many searchers are going to rest as they've been up since 5 a.m. Friday morning. However, some of them are returning to the police department to see if pressing for the new phone log info will help. Additionally, a Private Investigator has been contacted by the family but it is unknown at this time if he will be able to work with the DA to force AT&T to release the phone records that could help locate Jeremy.

Friends and family, through a broad effort, will be able to mobilize such resources such as an airplane, ATV's, hikers and mountain bikers if we are able to localize the search near the unidentifiable tower.

Thankfully, Channel 7 has agreed to interview the family and will televise it tomorrow.

Please keep Jeremy in your thoughts and prayers and if you have any ideas or know how to make influences in this matter, please post them here and someone will contact you. Thank you so much for your help!"

*** Please Help Today ***

If you are planning on mountain biking today and live in this area, or you need an excuse to get off your butt, PLEASE COME AND HELP. We have narrowed the area to Hwy 67 between Woodland Park and Deckers, Rampart Range Area (see google map below). Please check in to the command post located in front of the Teller County Sheriff's department as we are keeping track of the areas already covered. Teller County Sheriff's Office, 11400 West Highway 24/P.O. Box 27, Divide, CO 80814 (719) 687-9652 Fax (719 )687-7927

Jeremy is an avid mountain biker and although he did not take his bikes, it is believed he knows these trails well and might have gone for a hike. We need as many people as possible to ride these trails.

And be on the lookout for his black honda 2 door with bike racks!
