The Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a missing Missoula man who is thought to be in the Blodgett Canyon area, west of Hamilton.

Sheriff Chris Hoffman said a family member notified his office that 25 year-old Ryan Boyd Silsby went to Blodgett Canyon on August 16, and that his family hasn’t heard from him since that day.

“Ryan told that family member than he intended to be back at work by August 18th,”Hoffman said. “He is described as an adult male, 6 feet one inches tall and weighing 170 pounds, He has brown hair and blue eyes and was believed to be wearing a yellow shirt and green shorts. He is also said to be an experienced outdoorsman.”

Hoffman said Ravalli County Search and Rescue crews have joined in the search with family members in the Blodgett Canyon area.

“We are also awaiting the arrival of at least two dog teams, I believe, out of the Kalispell area to help us with this search,” he said. “Of course, anyone who may have any information about Silsby’s whereabouts is asked to call the Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office at 363-3033.”
