The search resumes at first light today for a hiker reported missing yesterday at Haleakalā Crater, officials said.

The 67-year-old man was last seen by his wife on Wednesday morning, Sept. 25, when he left for a hike, but failed to return, said Maui Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga.

The search began at 11:22 p.m. on Wednesday.

Firefighters responding to the scene located the man’s car at the 8,000-foot elevation with his cell phone on the front seat, officials said.

Authorities say the missing man is a frequent visitor to the park, and is familiar with the area.

      May be nice for you, but may be not so nice for the people you leave behind who love and depend on you. Very selfish thought, dude.
