Search continues for hiker last seen near Vail

VAIL — Authorities in Eagle County are continuing their search for a hiker who was separated from his group and hasn’t been seen since Friday afternoon.

Fellow hikers said James McGrogan decided to continue ahead of his three friends during a break on a hut trip to the Eiseman Hut, north of Vail.

McGrogan had a large pack with food, water, medical supplies, a GPS and other tools.

Crews from several agencies have been searching for McGrogan, including two helicopters. Those efforts were unsuccessful as of Sunday evening.
