Sheriff's Office Update on the Gannon Stauch Case

February 12, 2020

On February 12, 2020, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office and partners continue to search specific areas and we have over 130 trained individuals to include Search and Rescue, Mounted and K-9's, assisting in today's search efforts. The investigation and search processes continue to run parallel with one another. 


We have a pool of over 500 citizen volunteers who have been vetted for search efforts.  We will be reaching out to them as the need arises. We do not anticipate needing anymore, so we will no longer be taking applications from citizens in the search for Gannon.


Even the smallest piece of information may prove valuable in solving this case and could consist of things as simple as anyone remembering suspicious persons or vehicles they saw in or around the area close to the date Gannon went missing.

The goal remains to find Gannon and bring him home safely. If you have information you feel is pertinent to Gannon’s case or his whereabouts, please call the Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 719-520-6666, or email [email protected], if you have not already done so.

Please do not send tips through social media platforms as this slows down the investigative process and the timeliness in following up on the tip and/or lead.

The Sheriff's Office has received 442 tips to date. This remains a very active and fluid investigation.  Specific details will be released as the investigation allows.
