Skeletal Remains Found Near Vail

Possible skeletal remains found during a search for a 55-year-old man in Eagle County could be those of a missing Chinese tourist. 

Search and rescue teams began efforts to locate Yunlong Chen March 7.  Chen was last seen February 28 in the area of the Vail Transportation Center during a ski trip. 

Searchers found what appeared to be the skeletal remains in the back bowls of Vail Mountain. 

Police don’t suspect foul play.
