Roye family seeking help to conduct their own search

“We fear she might be hurt or turned around and confused.” Moments after conducting a press conference to provide additional information about her missing daughter, Janice Roye and her oldest son, Will Bender, hit the road Monday scattering fliers at gas stations and visitors centers around Southeastern Idaho and Southwestern Wyoming, hoping someone, anyone might have information about Celina’s whereabouts. It has been nearly two weeks since 18-year old Celina Roye entered Green Canyon for what was supposed to be a two-day hiking trip. The family is back in Henderson, Nevada now but is trying to get back to the area as soon as they can to conduct their own search. Cache County Search and Rescue officials suspended their formal search on Monday, citing a lack of any substantial leads. “My fear is that she is deeper in than we’ve been reaching,” Janice Roye said on Wednesday. For that reason the family is working to organize their own search efforts. “We are trying to form a group that can hike in, camp out for a few days, and keep moving in deeper and deeper. We want to go in the way she would have gone in.” Roye is looking for any volunteers that are familiar with the area, are willing to help, or who can donate food and supplies for the search. “She has future plans with her boyfriend,” Roye said, “she wasn’t going up there to die.” Anyone with any information about Celina’s possible whereabouts, or who may be willing to participate in the search, is encouraged to send their information to willcomp@yahoo.com.
