When 46-year-old Robert Lowery went missing in Wyoming, Teton County authorities were on the search.  

The Houston father of two was last seen on August 20th on the Black Canyon Trail in Bridger-Teton National Forest near Grand Teton National Park.  

On Tuesday, September 28th, Teton County Sheriff's office issued a press release stating they located a body fitting the description of Robert Lowery.  

The County Sheriff's office said 25 volunteers along with multiple dog teams helped search for Lowery since he had gone missing.  

Authorities said the coverage of Gabby Petito, who was also found in Bridger-Teton National Forest, helped bring light to Lowery's missing case.   

Since then, the family was only able to offer a statement as they  deal with the recent news about Lowery.   

While the family waits for the coroner's report in Teton County, the family said quote "We especially want to thank Teton County Sheriff’s Deputy Chad Sachse and his department for all of their work during this month that Bob has been missing...We also thank you all for your support and prayers." 

The statement also included thanks for the news media involved in this quote "difficult time." 

With the passing of Lowery, the family wants to make sure his two children, Luke and Meredith, are supported through this process.  

The Lowery family created a GoFundMe page to raise money for the children's futures.   

Thousands of dollars have been donated hours after the page was created.  

The family concluded their statement by saying "Bob has been a wonderful father, son, brother, and friend."
