Holly Courtier Missing
Courtier arrived at Zion National Park for a hike around 1:30 p.m. on October 6. According to the National Park Service, Courtier was “possibly dropped off by a private shuttle bus at the Grotto parking area.” The NPS did not clarify whether any other hikers were on the shuttle with Courtier.
The park does not currently allow visitors to drive private vehicles within certain areas of the park. An online map of Zion shows the Grotto shuttle stop has a picnic area, restrooms, and “ranger-led programs.” The stop has access to the Grotto Trail, the Kayenta Trail, and the West Rim Trail.
Officials said Courtier had been scheduled to be picked up at 4:40 p.m. after her hike. But she did not arrive at the parking area for the return trip out of Zion.
Courtier worked as a nanny before the coronavirus pandemic hit. Chambers explained to Fox News that after her mother lost her job, she decided to take advantage of the extra time and travel around the country.
Kailey Chambers Statement
Courtier’s daughter, 19-year-old Kailey Chambers, is pleading for anyone with information to come forward immediately. Chambers explained in an Instagram post on October 12 that park rangers told her the official search would be called off within a day or two unless they received new credible intel.
Courtier recently visited Zion National Park with her daughter. Chambers told CBS Los Angeles that her mother is an experienced hiker and has gone hiking alone before. On Courtier’s public-facing Facebook page, her cover photo shows her sitting along the edge of a cliff at what may have been a national park. (She did not include the location).
