Authorities Get Dozens Of Tips & Narrow Search For Lucius Robbi

MISSOULA -

Dozens of tips pour into sheriff's departments in Montana and Idaho, but there's been no luck in finding missing University of Montana student Lucius Robbi.

He was supposed to get to Missoula Wednesday from Banks, Idaho.

Boise county undersheriff Dale Rogers says they think they have a pretty good idea of the route Robbi took on his way to Missoula.

So far, three sightings of Robbi that seem credible were reported, one happened just an hour and a half south of Missoula.

Lucius Robbi, 21, seemed to love the outdoors, especially being on the water. This was his second summer guiding at Cascade Raft and Kayak.

"He loves to paddle so he's on the water all the time," said Kenneth Long, the manager at Cascade Raft and Kayak and someone who worked with Robbi.

People are taking the search into their own hands and coordinating volunteer search efforts online. There's now a Finding Lucius Facebook page and a GoFundMe site that has raised more than $10,000 in just a day to ease the cost of the search.

"Every day we've been having a crew that's been participating in the search," said Long.

Rogers says they've narrowed the search starting in Garden Valley along Highway 17 and then onto Highway 21 in Idaho. Authorities take that up to Stanley and take Highway 75, which turns into US 93 near Challis, which eventually leads to Missoula.

"We are following up a few leads that we've gotten. Nothing has panned out. We have no real indication that Mr. Robbi has been in Ravalli county," said Chris Hoffman, the Ravalli county sheriff.

The latest reported sighting happened Saturday afternoon at Spring Gulch campground. Rogers says he's asked Ravalli county authorities to look into that. There's also been surveillance footage of a car that looked like Robbi's in Garden Valley and an unconfirmed sighting at a gas station in Challis.

"Everybody is hopeful for locating Lucius," said Long.

Robbi is five feet and eleven inches tall. He weighs about 160 pounds and has brown hair and hazel eyes.

He was last seen driving a blue-green Subaru Station Wagon with two orange kayaks.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Tina Glaessner (707)296-0048; Custer County, Idaho Sheriff's Office (208)879-2232; Ravalli County Sheriff's Office (406)363-3033.
