Search continues for missing man at Yosemite

Yosemite National Park officials continue to search for the 22 year-old Honduran man who was reported missing Sunday afternoon.

Esmin Garmendia-Barrios was last seen in the Washburn Point parking lot on a day trip to the park with two other male adults and a 12 year-old boy. Park officials said Garmendia-Barrios stayed behind to read his Bible, but was gone when his friends returned 30 minutes later.

Garmendia-Barrios was wearing jeans, a blue T-shirt and black Sketcher shoes.

About 100 searchers from Yosemite National Park and surrounding counties are working on the case.

Anyone in the areas of Sentinel Dome, Washburn Point or Glacier Point or on the Illilouette, Panorama or Pohono trails Sunday afternoon is asked to contact the Yosemite National Park Search and Rescue Office at (209) 372-0311.
