The search continues for a man who’s been missing in the Yosemite Valley since he was last seen May 3.
Yosemite National Park Rangers continued searching for Alexander Sevier, an active member of the U.S. Navy, who traveled to the national park alone on May 1.
Sevier was staying at Housekeeping Camp and neighbors in the camp told rangers the man would go out for day hikes each day, hiking alone and returning to the camp each evening.
