ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - There is still no sign of a missing firefighter in the Jemez Mountains, but the search continues.
On Thursday, Adams’ father-in-law spoke to the media, explaining how they broke the news to Adams' son who turns 4 next month.
“He keeps asking for daddy,” said Harold David Abbott. “We tell him that daddy's in the woods, daddy's missing and that we got a whole lot of people trying to find him. I don't know if he understands. He's a 4-year-old.”
Abbott flew in from Maine on Sunday. He says the family is very thankful for the hundreds who have helped look for 41-year-old Adams.
Abbott says his daughter, Adams’ wife, is a week away from giving birth and is remaining remarkably strong. But he also says the family is preparing for the worst.
Helicopters, K-9 units and people on horseback and ATVs have all been combing mesa tops and steep canyons just east of Jemez Springs.
More than 250 people were out looking Thursday, including a State Police crew using an infrared camera looking for a heat source. They didn't find anything.
But State Police Search and Rescue and the southwest area Incident Management Team say they have no plans of giving up anytime soon.
Two National Guard Black Hawk helicopters have flown the entire area at least three times and have not spotted anything.
Highly-specialized crews joined the search Wednesday, both on the ground and in the air, but still no sign of Token Adams.
People who know Adams are baffled because he is highly trained and knows the rugged area well.
“These situations are always difficult because it's the unknown. People will say, 'Well, how could this happen? How could someone who knows the forest become lost?' But, maybe he didn't become lost ... maybe there was an accident. Again, it's the great unknown,” David Shell, incident management team, said.
Crews think they have only covered about 25 percent of the area where Adams may be. They have checked cellphone coverage to narrow focus, but so far, that effort hasn't turned up anything useful.
Hotshot crews have been requested to help, but many of them are tied up working fires in other western states.
