Karen Colclough

(JACKSON, WY) – A Jackson Hole woman died on a mission trip in Nicaragua last week.  Karen Colclough of Wilson was serving her second mission for the Presbyterian Church in Jackson. After Colclough failed to show up for a dinner appointment Friday night, team members began coordinating search and rescue operations, which ended when her body was found Monday night. Officials say Colclough had been running on a beach at the time she disappeared, but declined to offer details about her death.
