Remains found in the High Uintah Mountains are believed to be those of an Australian hiker who was reported missing in the area in 2011. According to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, information was received last week that human remains were located near Allsop Lake in the High Uintah Mountains on the border of Summit and Duchesne County. A father and two sons from Coalville were recreating in the area when they located a backpack, tent and what appeared to be human remains. While DNA testing is required to confirm the identity of the remains, the Sheriff’s Office believes that due to the proximity to the personal belongings nearby, it is believed to be Eric Robinson, the Australian hiker that’s been missing for just over 5 years. Robinson had been dropped off at the Chepeta Lake Trailhead and was scheduled to arrive at Mirror Lake on August 7th, 2011 but never arrived. Duchesne County Search and Rescue worked actively for several weeks and continued the search over the years to locate the missing man but with no success. Duchesne County Sheriff’s Office shared their deepest sympathies to the Robinson family in Australia and their hope that this discovery will offer them some closure.
