The Teton County Sheriff’s Office is looking for information about a missing Texas man who was last seen in Jackson.
Robert “Bob” Stiles Lowery, 46, was from Houston and was last seen in Jackson on Aug. 19, according to Attempt to Locate, a social media page that shares information about missing persons cases. The organization received information about the case from the sheriff’s department.
Lowery was last seen on video at Piste Mountain Bistro at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village. It is believed he took a rideshare car to Pearl Street Bagels in Wilson the following day.
Lowery had never been to Jackson prior to his arrival and may have had plans to go camping, as he’d recently obtained a sleeping bag and tent. However, he had no previous camping experience.
Lowery’s family believes he might have been working somewhere in town before he disappeared. The last “ping” on his cell phone was in Jackson on Aug. 23, but the phone is now no longer working or trackable.
Lowery is 6 feet tall, has brown hair and blue eyes and often wore a Patagonia vest over a T-shirt. He was last seen wearing a black baseball hat with the letter “P,” a blue down vest, a plaid shirt and blue jeans.
Before Lowery left Houston, he canceled his mail delivery.
Anyone with information about Lowery is encouraged to call the sheriff’s department at 307-733-2331, especially if they have seen or spoken with him since Aug. 20.
A number of people have disappeared from the Grand Teton and Jackson area over the last few months. Cian McLaughlin, an Irish man who worked as a ski instructor, disappeared after being last seen hiking in Grand Teton National Park. He has yet to be found.
Just days after Lowery was last seen, a young woman from New York, Gabby Petito, was last seen in Grand Teton. She is also still missing.
