Because of the body's treacherous location, recovery efforts did not begin until Thursday.
However, on Thursday, West Metro Fire and Jefferson County search crews could not find a body.
"The Jeffco Sheriff's Office will meet with the reporting party [Friday] morning at Red Rocks to see if he can lead the searchers to where he saw the body. I will advise of any updates tomorrow," according to Mark Techmeyer, spokesperson for Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
Come Friday morning, the spelunker did not show up to meet with search-and-rescue teams.
At 12:30 p.m. on Friday, the search was called off. Alpine Search and Rescue found nothing. The reporting party still has not assisted with the search.
