On Sunday, October 19th, 2014, the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) issued a press release indicating that the body of missing 15 year old Pinedale High School student Logan Dobkins, had been located near Fremont Lake outside of Pinedale. Logan had been missing since late in the evening on Tuesday, October 14th.

They will also provide information about suicide and mental illness in adolescents, including risk factors and warning signs of suicide, and will address attendees’ questions and concerns. A meeting announcement has also been posted on the SCSD 1 Facebook page and the district website. If parents have questions regarding this event, or would like more information, they are encouraged to contact their building principal or counselors for more information.
Trained crisis counselors will be available to meet with students and staff starting Monday morning, and continuing over the next few weeks as needed.
