Day six of the search for missing hiker James "Randy" Udall is underway with favorable weather conditions early morning. Ground teams including Search and Rescue members on foot and on horseback, along with five search dog teams continue an aggressive search of the area. Two helicopters are also actively engaged. No sightings or clues have developed during the course of the search.
Chance of afternoon thunderstorms increase today with the threat of lightning a consideration for searchers and flight crews. Ground crews are prepared to spend the night in the event the helicopters cannot retrieve them due to weather. Creeks and drainages in the search area are running high, one helicopter dedicated much of yesterday to those waterways with no results. Back country rangers with the U.S. Forest Service combed timbered areas at lower elevations while SAR teams from Sublette, Teton and Fremont Counties worked above tree line.
