Sublette County officials were searching Monday for a Cheyenne man who disappeared while hiking in the Wind River Mountains over the weekend.

Thor Hallingbye, 41, was last seen in the vicinity of Gannett Peak in the mountain range near Pinedale on Saturday afternoon. He was last seen wearing a red backpack.

According to a social media post by his wife, Jenileah Hallingbye, Thor got separated from his group after summiting Gannett Peak. He was last seen around 2 p.m. Saturday, “about 30 minutes from the top.”

She noted that the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office will be using helicopters to search for her husband on Monday.

“Please say prayers for Thor,” she wrote. “Please pray that he is safe and that he will be found. We have faith that he is okay.”

Hallingbye is 5-foot, 7-inches, 125 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information regarding Hallingbye’s disappearance should call the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office at 307-367-4378.

This is not the first person to have disappeared following recreating in the remote areas of Wyoming. Jackson resident Cian McLaughlin was last seen hiking in Grand Teton National Park in early June, but has not been seen since.
