Little Rock Creek, Bitter Root Mountains

A hiker found the body of a hiker missing since 2006, near Little Rock Creek in the Bitter Root Mountains.

HAMILTON - Human remains discovered in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness two weeks ago are those of a Post Falls, Idaho, man who disappeared in 2006, said Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman.

Robert L. Noble, 41, was reported missing on July 24, 2006 by his family after he failed to return from a hiking trip in the Little Rock Creek drainage five miles west of Lake Como. Skeletal remains, camping and camera gear were discovered a little over a week ago about three-quarters of a mile west of Little Rock Creek Lake on a steep, rocky slope.

Cause of death is expected to be a fall. My condolences to his friends and family.
