The family of a hiker missing in Glacier National Park say they're coming to terms with his possible death.
Jakson Kreiser was reported missing after going on a hike July 27. Several regional organizations, including Glacier National Park and North Valley Search and Rescue, went on an intense search, which has been scaled back in recent days due to a lack of clues.
In a statement, Kreiser's parents said, "We believe that he has found the world's greatest resting place. Jakson absolutely fell in love with Glacier National Park, all that it has to offer, as well as all of the people he came to know."
They go on to thank everyone who helped in the search and attended an Aug. 2 prayer vigil.
Notices about Kreiser are posted on trail signs in the area where he went missing. Anyone with information is asked to call park dispatch at 406-888-7800.
