ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Over two hundred people are continuing to search for a missing wildland firefighter Jemez.
Weather Monday has made those efforts difficult as crews transition to looking through tougher terrain but officials say they’re remaining optimistic.
Token Adams, 41, has been missing since Friday when he and two other firefighters set off on ATVs to check on a small fire in the area.
Adams made a call to his wife around 1 p.m. and didn’t sound like he was in any kind of trouble but he never made it back his team’s meeting point.
Officials remain confident explaining Adams is well trained. He’s a former hotshot firefighter and Navy trained as a Seal.
Adams went missing in a tricky area filled with mesas and small canyons and Search and Rescue teams are beginning to probe a little deeper into that rugged area.
Looming weather conditions Monday prevented air support from helping out much of the day which left the ground crews with the heavy lifting.
While there has been no signal from Adams cell phone or radio since Friday but crews say they are dedicated to continuing the search efforts.
Adams has a wife and young son and a baby on the way this month.
His family tells KRQE News 13 that they are very thankful to everyone helping in the search.
