Camper, 63, missing in southern Colo.

DENVER ” Searchers are looking for a camper missing in the mountains around Lake City.

The 63-year-old man from Oklahoma was reported missing on Friday after a passerby noticed that he hadn’t returned to his campsite. He is believed to have been camping in the area by himself.

The Hinsdale County sheriff’s office said the man has been described as a “determined individual” who has vacationed in the area for many years. Searchers have examined his campsite but no signs of what happened to him have been found.

Seven search teams and a helicopter from the Colorado Air National Guard are participating in the search.
