    The missing hiker has been gone for two days and two nights. The temperatures get cold in the Uinta Mountains, even in the summer. If he was expecting to return home on Monday then it is unlikely that he had a tent and sleeping bag. If he isn't found on Wednesday (today) then his survival prospects are not good. When I was about twenty years old I spent considerable time in the Uintas and I always had a tent,sleeping bag, and food with me.
