A man from Oak Creek is missing. 25-year-old Kyle Baglo hasn’t been seen since Sunday night. His last known location was east of Steamboat Springs near the intersection of Highway 40, and 131.

Someone illegally shot a mule deer in Craig Tuesday. Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials want to know who did it. The injured deer had an arrow sticking from his left rear hip. Wildlife Officer Mike Swaro says the deer seems to be doing OK.

Swaro says the wound was fresh and the black carbon arrow looked new, like it could have been a Christmas gift. They would like to know who did it, and if it might have been a mistake. They will take that into account if the person comes forward.

If you have any information, call 970-942-8275. Or you can remain anonymous by contacting Operation Game Thief. There could be a monetary reward.
