Missing man found at Schweitzer airlifted off mountain, later pronounced dead

SANDPOINT, Idaho – Search crews found a missing man at Schweitzer Mountain Monday morning, nearly 24 hours after he was reported missing.

Bonner County emergency responders said Riley Hadeen, 27, was found in-bounds around 10:00 a.m. Monday.

He was first reported missing in the North Bowl area around 2:45 p.m. Sunday. Crews searched until about 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, but weather conditions forced them to suspend the search.

Around 10:00 p.m, a search and rescue crew was called in from Fairchild Air Force Base to search with thermal sensors, but the man could not be found at that time.

Then, on Monday morning the ski patrol found him and started giving him CPR. He was airlifted off the mountain to the Sandpoint Airport where Bonner County EMS pronounced him dead. His cause of death has not been released.

Schweitzer says it’s in contact with the man’s family and supporting them through this difficult time.
