An extensive search for Robert "Bob" Geisler, 51, of Delta ended tragically May 31 with the discovery of his motorcycle and his body off the side of Highway 133 in rural Gunnison County, near mile marker 31. His daughter, Tiffany Toothaker, posted on Facebook that he was found by West Elk Search and Rescue. Geisler had last been seen May 12 after leaving Glenwood Springs. It was believed he was heading back to Delta via McClure Pass. When he did not arrive in Delta, family members filed missing persons reports in Pitkin, Gunnison and Delta counties. They walked the highway searching for any sign, search efforts that were assisted by a number of governmental agencies.
According to an obituary provided by Taylor Funeral Service, the accident was the result of a fatal heart attack.
