Craig Arnold missing on expedition in Japan

Craig Arnold (born November 16, 1967) is an American poet. His first book of poems, Shells (1999), was selected by W. S. Merwin for the Yale Series of Younger Poets.[1][2] In 2005, he was awarded the Joseph Brodsky Rome Prize Fellowship in literature by the American Academy of Arts and Letters.[3] He teaches poetry at the University of Wyoming.[4]

While we were in Marfa, Tim Johnson told us that his friend and colleague had been missing for five days on an expedition in Japan. Today will be the 11th day of the search.
