Friends and family got concerned when they found out he did not reported to work Monday morning. That sent up a red flag and they called the sheriff's office.

His vehicle was found, but there are no clues as to where he is.

Crews searched the main trails and camping areas yesterday, but found nothing. The search was resumed Wednesday morning.

Sgt. Mike Lloyd/ Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office: "This is Albion Basin. There are several lakes in the area. It's a really popular area. There's a lot of good easy hiking trails, but if you get off them, the terrain can be real tough, real rocky, cliffy."

Investigators don't know if he was prepared for the cooler temperatures on the mountain, but they do say he appears to be an avid outdoorsman.

Officials are asking anyone that may have seen Micah while hiking in or out of the Albion Basin, to contact the Salt Lake County Sheriff's office.
