It's unclear how long they've been missing.


The sheriff's office told one media outlet the Bowman's were last believed to be near the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve on Friday, May 27. That landmark in the Rocky Mountains is located just south of Blanca Peak. That area is approximately 94 miles slightly southwest of Colorado Springs.


According to the sheriff's office, their family did receive a brief message from them on Wednesday, June 1, but that didn't indicate where they were.


Anyone with information is asked to contact the Alamosa County Sheriff's Office at 719-589-6608.
