Officials called in more people and dogs Tuesday to expand the search for a Glacier Park Lodge employee who has been missing since Saturday.
More than 40 National Park Service employees, augmented by a dog team and a helicopter, searched Sinopah Mountain above Two Medicine Lake, but found no trace of the missing man. Employees of Glacier Park Inc. also were helping, and three more dog teams were expected.
Matthew Truszkowski, 25, of Lexington, Mich., left the men’s dormitory at East Glacier about 11 a.m. Saturday with plans to climb the 8,271-foot mountain alone. Friends notified rangers that night after he failed to meet them at Two Medicine Lake.
Park spokeswoman Amy Vanderbilt said one search group on Monday reported seeing some human tracks on a snowfield on Sinopah Mountain.
Truszkowski was last seen wearing jeans, a long-sleeved shirt and sneakers, and he was believed to be carrying a day pack. Park officials believe he has only limited outdoor experience.
