SAGUACHE COUNTY, Colo. — Officials are searching for a missing man who may have been hiking in the area of Kit Carson Peak and Challenger Point in Saguache County over the weekend.

Tyler Cline was likely hiking in that area on Sunday, but has not returned. His car was found in the area, but his phone is either off or dead, according to his friends.

Both Kit Carson and Challenger are above 14,000 feet in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Hikers and climbers will often summit both because they are close, though the trail is difficult and usually makes for a long day at high altitude.

Chaffee County Search and Rescue North said they helping with the search for Cline.

If you have any information on where Cline may be, contact the Chaffee County Sheriff's Office at 719-539-2596.
