ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) — The search for a New Jersey man reported missing in Rocky Mountain National Park has been temporarily suspended due to weather.

Park officials say technical crews searching Longs Peak for 30-year-old Ryan Albert of Marlton, New Jersey, ran into extreme conditions on Tuesday including waist-deep snow drifts, wind, ice, cold temperatures and low visibility. The search was temporarily suspended due to a winter weather advisory issued for Wednesday.

Park spokeswoman Lindsey Lewis says Thursday’s weather forecast seems to show a bit of improvement, which should allow teams to resume the search.

Albert was last seen in Denver on Oct. 4. Family members reported him overdue on Oct. 5. The four-day search has turned up no clues as to Albert’s whereabouts.
