Colorado search goes on for missing Indiana hiker

CHESTERTON, Ind. (AP) — The mother of a northern Indiana doctor says authorities in Colorado are searching for the man after he disappeared on a hiking trip with three friends near Vail.

Arlene McGrogan of Chesterton told The (Munster) Times that Dr. James McGrogan recently returned to northern Indiana to work in the emergency department of St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Mishawaka, just east of South Bend.

Crews including two helicopters have been searching for McGrogan. The 39-year-old Chesterton native became separated from his group and hasn't been seen since Friday afternoon.

Fellow hikers said McGrogan decided to continue ahead of his 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.
