JEMEZ, N.M. (KRQE) - The mother of Token Adam’s has joined the hundreds of crews pouring into the Jemez Mountains searching for the missing firefighter.
Tuesdays marks the fifth day in the search for 41-year-old Adams who was last seen Friday when he and others went out on ATVs to check out a small fire in a remote rugged area of the Jemez wilderness.
Everyone came back to the designating meeting spot except for Adams.
Since Friday the search party for Adams has grown to close to 300 people. A Type One Team was briefed Tuesday afternoon. That team is more experienced and prepared to deal with more complex situations in trickier terrain.
The New Mexico National Guard flew a Black Hawk helicopter to help in the search Wednesday, but a passing storm delayed air support and some overnight searching.
Adams is a former hot shot crew member and has food and water. His survival skills are keeping search crews hopeful. Another focus of hope is that it has not gotten too cold in the area overnight and has stayed in the 50s.
Adam’s has a young song and another child due this month.
