FILLMORE (AP) – Authorities in Southern California have resumed the search for an Arcadia firefighter who went missing Friday in Los Padres National Forest after chasing his dog during a backpacking trip.
Sheriff’s Capt. Rob Davidson says searchers fanned out again early Wednesday, looking in rugged terrain for 34-year-old Michael Herdman.
Herdman was hiking with a friend near the Tar Creek trail when he went running after his dog and disappeared. He was barefoot and wearing only shorts and a T-shirt.
It took the friend two days to hike out of the area and alert authorities.
Rescuers in the air and on horseback are searching the mountains above Fillmore.
Herdman is a firefighter and paramedic with the Arcadia Fire Department.
