Men who sparked manhunt at Grand Teton Park ID’d

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Officials have released the names of three men who sparked a manhunt near a global financial meeting at Grand Teton National Park.

Park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs tells The Jackson Hole News & Guide (http://bit.ly/1loF7N8 ) that 27-year-old Jonathan Metzman, of Blacksburg, Virginia; 24-year-old William Wood, of Antioch, Tennessee; and 27-year-old Jonathan Wyatt, of Hendersonville, Tennessee, each were cited for trespassing.

The men are accused of stopping for the night in an empty dorm room at the park rather than finding a campsite. When security found them in the room and contacted rangers, the men ran, prompting a three-hour search Thursday that included road checkpoints and rangers armed with rifles.

The incident raised concern because the dorm is near Jackson Lake Lodge, where Federal Reserve and other global financial figures are meeting.
