Search Continues for Man Missing on Mauna Kea

By Stephanie Lum

MAUNA KEA, Big Island (KHNL) -- The search continues for a Michigan man who went hiking to the Summit of Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii.

67-year old Brian Murphy was last seen checking in at the Visitor's Center at the 9,000 foot level last Wednesday.

At that time, his daughter said someone advised him not to go any further.

He was wearing a t-shirt, shorts, hat and tennis shoes.

His rental car has been found.

The Hawaii Fire Department's Battallion Cheif says crews will continue to search by air and on the ground Tuesday in areas they couldn't previously access because of the bad weather.
