Search for missing hiker in the Sierra Nevadas

The Guardia Civil is planning to intensify the search for a 34-year-old man who has been missing in the Sioerra Nevada mountains since Wednesday.

Firefighters, volunteers, family and relatives will join the search which is being coordinated by the Mountain Rescue Service (SEREIM).

The missing man, 34-year-old Juan R.F.from Granada, left the trail in the Sierra Nevada mountains and then reported having an accident. He was disorientated and unable to give his location due to heavy fog in the area.

He had apparently set of for a walk on Wednesday but had not taken any suitable equipment to aid survival in the mountains in adverse weather conditions.

The search has so far been concentrated in the valleys of the río Dílar and Genil and in the San Juan gorge.
