Police are still searching for a hiker who has been missing since Wednesday night near Mount Charleston’s Mary Jane Falls trail.
Metro Police were notified of the missing hiker at about 8:30 p.m. Two men had been hiking together near Mary Jane Falls trail, but they separated after one of the men began to feel ill, Metro spokesman Bill Cassell said.
The other hiker went to get help, but when officers went to retrieve the man, he was gone, Cassell said.
Metro have been searching for the missing hiker with helicopters and ground troops since late Wednesday night with only a two-hour break in between, he said.
