Longmont skydiving company owner defends actions after client death


LONGMONT |  The owner of a Longmont skydiving company says he and his staff were involved in search efforts after a client went missing and was later found dead.

The Times-Call reported Tuesday that Mile-Hi Skydiving owner Frank Casares this week spoke publicly for the first time about the October death of 23-year-old Logan Polfuss, who was last seen alive aboard a Mile-Hi airplane.

Casares says his company in the city about 38 miles (61 kilometers) north of Denver never stopped searching for Polfuss once he was reported missing and that employees were with police on the helicopter that located the accident site.

The newspaper reports that questions arose regarding when Mile-Hi began looking for Polfuss, citing reports that his girlfriend reported him missing hours later when he failed to return home.
