Olympic National Park says a search is under way for a man who failed to return from a seven-day off-trail hike through remote terrain.
The park says 60-year-old James Christian Strong of Oakland, California, was last seen Sept. 10, leaving Sold Duc Hot Springs.
He had planned to traverse the Bailey Range and arrive Sunday at
the North Fork Quinault trailhead.
The search involves four helicopters and 15 people on the ground.
