PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) — Teams plan to resume searching Saturday for a 60-year-old man missing in Washington's Olympic National Park.
Jim Griffin went for a hike Monday on the Olympic Hot Springs Trail. His friends reported him missing Wednesday night after he failed to show up at a Christmas Eve dinner.
The National Park Service said three searchers spent that night looking for him, and two two-person teams looked for him on Thursday. In the afternoon, they found his day pack 50 feet off the trail, just half a mile from the trailhead.
Searchers from Olympic National Park, Olympic Mountain Rescue and three dog teams found no further sign of him on Friday. They planned to resume at 7 a.m. Saturday.
Officials said Griffin frequently takes day hikes to the Olympic Hot Springs.
