Rescue workers are entering a third day of searching for a Minnesota man who went missing while camping and hunting in the Routt National Forest.

The Steamboat Pilot & Today reports Richard Harkins went hunting alone Monday morning with a small tent, a pack, food and water. His companions called for help when he didn't return to camp by Tuesday night.

The search began Wednesday. Dogs were brought in to assist on Thursday, and riders on horseback will be added to the search as well. Air support for the search has been provided by several agencies.

Kristin Raver says her brother hunted in the same area a year ago, and is very organized and prepared.
