Volunteers, firefighters and search and rescue teams have been combing mesa tops and steep canyons east of Jemez (HAY'-muhs) Springs in search of Token Adams.
The 41-year-old engine crew captain disappeared Friday while checking on a report of smoke. He was on an ATV and failed to return to a pre-arranged meeting point with two other firefighters.
Hundreds of people have participated in the search.
Officials say crews are focused on 25 square miles of rugged forest. About a quarter of the area has been covered by ground crews, while air support has searched much of the rest.
A special helicopter with infrared and low-light sensors is scheduled to arrive Thursday.
