YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK (CBS SF) – Rangers in Yosemite National Park are asking for help from people in search of Fred Zalokar, a skilled marathon runner who went missing for a weekend walk.
According to National Service Park officials, the 61-year-old Zalokar was walking from the Happy Islands of the Yosemite Valley to the top of Mount Clark on Saturday and took a flight outside Bunell Point. Zalokar did not return to the Yosemite Valley as planned, and his whereabouts are unknown.
Zalokar is described as a 6-foot tall, weighing 150 pounds, with gray hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a yellow shirt, khaki shorts, calf sleeves, a brown Sierra East hat and sunglasses.
Officials said Zalokar also wore a red Red Mammut bullet, which was described as old and faded, and had a black LED light in front of it. She may also have a jacket, but the type and color are not known.
Zalokar also had a dual family radio and probably used Bank 1 / Channel 1.
according to his personal website, Zalokar is a marathoner, climber and skilled runner who has lived in the Reno area since 1984.
The search for Zalokar takes place in the wake of numerous lightning strikes in Sierra and around Yosemite National Park just after noon on Monday.
