Rand Teton National Park in Wyoming has posted an appeal to Cian McLaughin, 27, who was last seen at 2.30pm on Tuesday, June 8.
Dublin was reported missing Sunday morning by the Tinton County Sheriff’s Office after they received a missing person report late Saturday night after he failed to show up for work on Thursday.
Then park rangers found his car early Sunday morning in Lubben Meadows Trailhead.
Searches continue in the park for the second day. Forty park employees, four local dog search and rescue teams and members of the Teton County Search and Rescue are searching for Mr. McLaughlin along with aerial reconnaissance.

He is described as being 6 feet tall and 180 pounds. He has brown hair, collar length, and brown eyes.
