After a day of searching, hunter still missing in eastern Utah

The search will resume Monday for an 83-year-old man missing in Duchesne County.

The man, from the Salt Lake City area, has been missing since Saturday afternoon. He was hunting in Dry Gulch, about 7 miles north of Altamont, said Duchesne County Sheriff Travis Mitchell. The man's name had not been released.

Mitchell said the man was following people on all-terrain vehicles but stopped without the others realizing. He hiked and found some other hunters about 3 p.m. Saturday, Mitchell said. The group of hunters said the man reported he was fine and knew where his ATV was. Mitchell said the man had been lost in the area before and his daughter has said he has no health problems.

A search Sunday stopped about 8 p.m.
