A search involving more than 80 personnel began after park law enforcement received a call expressing concern for Hembree's welfare based on the caller's interaction with Hembree just outside the park.

Hembree's vehicle was found at the Game Warden Point parking area in the eastern part of Grand Teton.

Several agencies participated in the search, including the Civil Air Patrol and Wyoming Highway Patrol.
