Laramie, Wy – The state's public defender is missing. It happened while Ken Koski was camping in the Wind River Mountains.
Family members say Koski was due back in Cheyenne on September eighth. On September ninth hikers in the Wind River Mountains found his campsite-- abandoned. The family says his backpack was there, but a pack for day trips was not. Also Koski's journal was inside the tent and the last entry was made on September fifth.
