​Missing Boy Scouts Found Safe, 1 Dead​​

Missing members of the Boy Scouts have been found safe in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, but their leader wasn’t as lucky. Clawson Bowman Jr., 69, is believed to have died from heat stroke while at the recreational facility.

However, a medical examiner has not officially released the cause.

“Our sympathies go out to the Bowman family,” Christie Vanover, a spokeswoman for the park, says in a press release. “We are thankful that, with the support of around 30 first responders, the others were safely rescued. The boys were very brave this afternoon as they tried to explain their location to our dispatchers.”

The troop called authorities for help when they realized that they were lost in the 2,337 mile park.

The Boy Scouts, who stayed on the phone with officials during the search, were missing about four hours before they were spotted by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, officials said.

They were all treated for heat stroke, and then airlifted out of the area where temperatures reached 110 degrees over the weekend.

“The boys were very brave this afternoon as they tried to explain their location to our dispatchers,” park spokeswoman Christie Vanover said in a statement.
