Derby Barracks / 5/15 UPDATE Orleans Missing Person

5/15/2017 UPDATE – Searches conducted today by the Vermont State Police and search & rescue teams in the southern area of Lake Willoughby in Westmore, located a deceased male in a wooded area at the bottom of a steep drop-off.  The male was discovered visually, but because of the difficult and technical nature of the terrain, searchers have been unable to reach the individual to confirm identity.  At this time the scene has been secured, and technical rescue equipment is being brought to the area for the recovery.   Because the finding was made this afternoon with only a small number of daylight hours left, it was decided to wait until at least tomorrow to conduct the recovery, but it’s unclear exactly when the this effort will begin.  While positive ID has not occurred, the family of Tyler Robinson has been notified of the discovery. 

 

Investigators have no evidence or information to suspect foul play in this incident.  If anyone has any information to provide, they are asked to call the  Vermont State Police at 802-334-8881.
