JEMEZ SPRINGS, N.M. (AP) — A search is continuing for a Forest Service firefighter missing in the Santa Fe National Forest in northern New Mexico since Friday.
Forest Service spokeswoman Karen Takai says Monday's search has 100 searchers on the ground looking for 41-year-old Token Adams in the area of Jemez (HAY'-mus) Springs.
He's been missing since late Friday afternoon. That's when he failed to return to a pre-arranged rendezvous point with two other firefighters who also rode ATVs to size up the perimeter of a 25-acre wildfire.
Takai says the search area initially covered approximately 25 square miles but now has been expanded to about 30 square miles.
Forest Service spokesman John Helmich (hel-mick) says the lightning-started wildfire was fully contained late Friday.
Searchers include search and rescue crews, volunteers and firefighters.
