Missing Pinedale Girl,16, Found Unharmed

by Joy Ufford And Janet Montgomery

A 16-year-old Pinedale girl reported as a “missing person” by the Sublette County Sheriff ’s Office (SCSO) on Monday became a “found person” Wednesday morning.

“The (SCSO) located Brittany Nesvik in Sublette County unharmed and well” at 8:30 Wednesday morning, according to a SCSO statement delivered about two hours later.

“The (SCSO) and Brittany’s family would like to thank the public for their assistance and response received over the past couple of days.”

What began as a “runaway juvenile” report in mid-December had become a “missing person juvenile” report on Monday after Brittany was apparently out of touch with anyone since around Christmas Eve.

On Dec. 17, Nesvik was reported as a runaway by her father, Brian Nesvik, South Pinedale game warden and a Wyoming National Guard commander. “She started out to be a runaway, which happens quite often with juveniles,” said Deputy Joe Ahlstrom of the Sublette County Sheriff ’s Office (SCSO).

However, because Brittany hadn’t made further contact with a “few select individuals since approximately Christmas Eve,” the SCSO had elevated her case to that of a “missing person, juvenile” on Jan. 7.
