Cuyahoga Valley National Park (OH)
Search Underway For Missing Woman

A search is in progress for a woman who’s been missing for more than a week and is believed to be in the park.

Hillary Sharma’s vehicle was found in Boston Store Visitor Center parking lot around midnight on Thursday, August 21st, after Eastlake Police Department issued an alert reporting her missing.

Rangers started a search at that time which was soon joined by several other agencies. It included ground teams with search dogs, horse patrols, boats on the Cuyahoga River, helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. Over 150 people participated in operations on Saturday alone.

The search was originally managed under a unified incident command that included the National Park Service, Valley Fire Department, and Brecksville Fire Department. It has since been scaled back and is now being managed by an NPS team (Chris Ryan, IC).
