We are just receiving word from the Colorado National Monument that officials are requesting the public's help to find a missing hiker. A search and rescue operation is currently underway on the south-east side of the monument.

The missing man is Jim Fuchs who is a white male standing 5'11 and around 175 pounds. The photo you see above is a recent photo of Mr Fuchs although officials aren't sure of a description of the clothing that he was last wearing.

If you have been hiking along the trails or backcountry from the Devil's Kitchen or Lower Serpents parking lots over the past 4 days and remember seeing Jim on the trails you're being asked to contact monument staff at 970-250-0805.
