Churchwide employee missing

James Nelson, 31, director for official roster records in the ELCA Office of the Secretary, was reported missing Oct. 8 when he did not return from a five-day, 25-mile solo hike on Colorado's Mount Holy Cross.

Search and rescue teams worked an excess of 1,000 hours in four days, according to the Eagle County Sheriff's office.

The official search for Nelson, an experienced hiker and backpacker, was called off Oct. 12, but searchers continue to look for clues of his whereabouts.
