Two more dog teams were being brought in to search Tuesday for a missing 73-year-old hiker last seen at a waterfall in Yosemite National Park where three people died two years ago.
Rangers are hoping the dog teams will catch a scent of Kenneth Stensby, a Minnesota man described in a park statement as an “avid hiker.”
Stensby had been staying at Yosemite's Ahwahnee Hotel for several days and left a note with the staff Sunday morning saying he expected to be back from his hike by noon, park officials said.
But Stensby didn't come back. His day pack was found later Sunday near the guard rails at the top of Vernal Fall, a 317-foot drop on the Merced River, officials said. His camera was missing.
