A search is underway in the Superstition Mountains east of the Phoenix area for a 34-year-old man last seen Monday when he set out for a hike at Lost Dutchman State Park.
The Pinal County Sheriff's Office says Christopher Hensley recently moved to Arizona.
Authorities say Hensley was dressed in black workout shorts, skateboard shoes and didn't have much water with him -- only enough for a short hike.
Hensley did not tell his family which part of the park he planned to hike and PCSO's search and rescue unit has been searching the rough terrain for over 45 hours.
The Sheriff's Office says its search and rescue unit deployed Monday night and that a member suffered a serious leg injury Tuesday night when a 20-pound rock fell on his leg.
Another member sprained an ankle.
Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, "The Pinal County Sheriff's Search and Rescue team already has had a record year
for the number of calls for service related to lost hikers. Individuals are encouraged to enjoy the great
outdoors and the beautiful hiking trails of the Superstition Mountains but they need to be prepared before
starting their adventure."
