Missing Backpack on Broken Hand Pass/Crestone Needle

On Saturday July 11th our group left a light blue Quechua bag between two rocks on the top of Broken Hand Pass at the turnoff for the Crestone Needle South Face Route. We placed it there around 3:30pm and got down from Needle around 6:30pm. It had a Platypus water filter, one full Nalgene, a 2L hydro pack, first aid kit, TP, North Face running jacket, ASICS running jacket, convertible pant legs, a smartwool shirt, rain pants, gloves, hat, and some other small things (no food).
We don't know if Marmots dragged it somewhere, or if someone was trying to be helpful and take it down to a trailhead, or if it was stolen. Regardless, we would've had a rough night if we didn't leave a backup water filter at our camp. If anyone sees it or knows where it's gone, we would love to get our stuff back.
Thanks so much!
