Rangers with the National Park Service were called to the Barry’s Landing area north of the Wyoming border around 4:30 p.m. Friday, June 18, 2021, according to a statement from NPS. The victim, 19-year-old Dominic Hunder of Lovell, was swimming with friends in the Hillsboro area when he became fatigued and slipped under the water. "He was unable to be rescued and did not resurface," the National Park Service said in a press release Saturday evening.
They searched for the missing teen by boat and along the shoreline, with assistance from the Lovell Fire Department, the Big Horn County Sheriff’s Department and Big Horn County Search and Rescue. The Carbon County Sheriff’s Office and a U.S. Water Rescue Dive Team out of Billings has joined in the effort. Dominic Hunder was not found that Friday.
