An Eldora Mountain Resort employee never returned home from work on Sunday afternoon.

Ryder Johnson, 20, was last seen leaving work at 3 p.m. that day. A Boulder County Sheriff's deputy found his vehicle near Gross Reservoir on Flagstaff Road at 10 o'clock that night.

Dozens of rescuers from multiple agencies searched around Gross Reservoir and Walker Ranch Open Space area on Monday morning. A helicopter was included in the search, but searchers found no sign of the Lafayette man.
