Posted: Updated:
CHELAN COUNTY, WA (KPTV) -

Search and rescue crews in Washington are looking for a Portland man after he did not return from his hike this past weekend.

Officials said 33-year-old Adam Ochshorn had set out to hike around Colchuck Lake on Friday, camp overnight, and then continue to climb Colchuck Peak on Saturday.

Ochshorn was expected to be back late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, but he did not show up.

Crews said they found Ochshorn’s tent on Monday, but they are still searching for him.

Officials also say that Ochshorn is an experienced climber and has hiked this area before.

More updates will be posted as soon as they are available.
