The search for 56-year-old George Alex Baumann of Stevensville has intensified in Ravalli County.

Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman said a search dog will be brought into the Ambrose Saddle area east of Stevensville Saturday, August 30. Baumann left home about 10:30 a.m. August 26, telling a friend that he was going to cut firewood in the Ambrose Creek area. His pickup was located in the area, but he has not been seen since that day.

An earlier dog team from Jefferson County and a local helicopter had not been successful in an initial search.

Undersheriff Steve Holton asked the public to please stay away from the Ambrose Saddle area this weekend so scent patterns will not be destroyed or disrupted. However, if you wish to help in the search or have information about Baumann, you’re asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 363-3033.

Baumann is described as a white male, 6 foot 4, 195 pounds and he has blond hair and blue eyes.
