Jonathan Berry was last seen Wednesday when he did not return from a hiking outing. Berry is a student at Brigham Young University and is from Grand Junction.
Authorities say the search was suspended over the weekend because of the number of weekend hikers in Rock Canyon. They say the tracking dogs were having a difficult time picking up Berry’s scent.
Police believe Berry was going hiking in Rock Canyon. Officers found his bike above Provo Temple on Thursday – but found no trace of him.
Authorities had hoped to use dogs over the weekend; however, there were too many hikers on the trails for the dogs to successfully pick up a scent. The search was suspended over the week, but resumed.
Officials think he was going hiking, but they have not found any signs of him on any trails.
Authorities say evidence, including a journal, shows Berry left for Rock Canyon sometime between midnight and 8 a.m. June 1. Later in the day officials found his bike in Provo.
