Man Disappears at Broncos Game

(DENVER) -- Paul Kitterman told his friend Tia Bakke that the experience  of being at his first ever Denver Broncos game in-person, with his son was “awesome” -- and that was the last she heard of him.

The 53-year-old from Kremmling seemingly vanished into the Sports Authority Field crowd at the Broncos-Chargers game last Thursday night, in what Denver police now call a missing persons case.

Bakke, who traveled with Kitterman and his son, Jarod, to the game, said they had plans to meet afterwards at a stadium gate.

“We go down to gate 8. No Paul. We wait an hour. No Paul,” she said.

Bakke’s group contacted stadium security and searched around the grounds until 1 a.m. before finally heading back to Kremmling without Kitterman, who has few contacts in Denver and had no cellphone, credit card or vehicle with him, Bakke said. She added he had plans to go hunting with his son the next morning.

Denver Police are assisting the family and are investigating, but are not actively searching on foot because they are not certain a crime was committed.
