WESTMORE — Officials are saying that recovery efforts for the body discovered on Mount Pisgah have been pushed back until Saturday.

On Tuesday, search and rescue officials surveyed the terrain where the deceased individual was discovered the day before.

Recovery officials now say they have determined the best course of action is to begin staging for the effort on Friday and complete the recovery on Saturday, utilizing technical rescue teams.

“The difficulty of the terrain on Mt. Pisgah, weather, and safety concerns require careful planning and precise techniques be utilized in the recovery operation,” a statement issued today by police reads.

On Friday, Stowe Mountain Rescue, the Vermont National Guard, the Vermont State Police and Colchester Technical Rescue will be preparing for the recovery.

On Saturday, the recovery attempt will begin at 8 a.m.

While positive ID has not occurred, the family of Tyler Robinson, the 23-year-old man from Orleans who has been missing since last Friday, have been notified of the discovery.
