(Beaver-AP) -- The search is underway for a missing hunter in the Beaver Mountains.

That's about nine-miles east of the town of Beaver.

The Beaver County Sheriff's office says 74-year old Rudy Lopez, Senior was reported missing after being separated from his family on Saturday while hunting.

Search and rescue crews were out in force this weekend. Today rescue workers will comb the Jimmy Reed Creek Canyon area on A-T-Vs, horseback, on foot and by chopper.

The Rocky Mountain Search and Rescue dog teams will also assist in the search.

Lopez is described as a Hispanic male about five-foot-nine with dark hair and brown eyes.

He was wearing an orange vest, a white long-sleeve shirt and blue jeans.
