Summit County personnel suspended their search Friday for a 77-year-old Provo man missing in the Uinta Mountains since Thursday night. They will resume the search Saturday.
Summit County Sheriff Detective Casey Bates said Christian Herrera, who had been on a horseback camping trip, became separated from a friend about 2 p.m. Thursday.
"We believe they had been riding to Kings Peak from the Henrys Fork Campground. [Herrera] stopped along the trail [and abandoned his horse] to take some pictures and that's when he became separated from his friend," Bates said. "His friend looked for him and couldn't find him, so he rode out where he could make a call [about 9 p.m. Thursday] to the sheriff's office."
