IVINS, Utah (AP) -- The search resumed Sunday for a missing Ivins woman who set out for a New Year's Day hike and never returned.

Police say Ann Gilbreath left home on foot early Thursday to hike nearby Red Mountain. Family members reported the 45-year-old missing to police.

Gilbreath's coat and scarf were found on the west edge of the mountain Friday and rescue teams have tracked her footprints on the trail leading up the mountain.

Ivins Deputy Director of Public Safety Pete Kuhlmann says prints disappear near the top of the mountain.

Family members say Gilbreath lives with her parents and has suffered some mental health problems.

Washington County Sheriff's Lt. Cory Pulsipher says several people were camping on Red Mountain, but none reported seeing Gilbreath.
