Park officials said Thursday a hiker found human remains in the Skeleton Gulch area in August 2020, and rangers this summer discovered items nearby belonging to Rudi Moder.

Moder started his excursion into the park in February 1983 and was reported overdue several days later.

He was an experienced winter mountaineer who was living in Fort Collins at the time.
