Search For Missing Firefighter Continues

JEMEZ SPRINGS, N.M. (September 4, 2013)--The search resumed Wednesday morning in northern New Mexico's Santa Fe National Forest for a firefighter who’s been missing since Friday.

Engine crew Capt. Token Adams disappeared checking on a report of smoke east of Jemez, where he lives with his wife and young son.

Adams, who was on an ATV, failed to return to a prearranged meeting point with two other firefighters.

No details were immediately available on the scope of Wednesday's search.

On Tuesday, hundreds fanned out looking for Adams.

Spokesman John Helmich said a regional incident management team assumed command of the search Wednesday morning.

Crews are searching an area with mesas, canyons and steep cliffs as well as heavy timber.
