The Clear Creek Sheriff's Office says searchers will try again Wednesday to find a hiker who disappeared Saturday.

Todd Musselman, 50, went hiking in the area of St. Mary's Glacier on Saturday and never made it home. There are several lakes, peaks and lots of rugged wilderness in the area.

The search has been hampered by high winds and blowing snow. Searchers also said they have uncovered an avalanche in the area where Musselman was possibly traversing. 

"One more day of searching will be conducted," said Special Operations Captain Rick Safe.
