Search resumes in for missing NM firefighter

JEMEZ SPRINGS, N.M. (AP) — The search for a U.S. Forest Service firefighter missing in northern New Mexico's Santa Fe National Forest has entered its seventh day.

Volunteers, firefighters and search and rescue teams have been combing mesa tops and steep canyons east of Jemez (HAY'-muhs) in search of Token Adams since Friday.

The 41-year-old engine crew captain disappeared Friday while checking on a report of smoke. He was on an ATV and failed to return to a pre-arranged meeting point with two other firefighters.

Hundreds of people at a time have participated in the search.
