Rescue operations called off with no sign of Hoosier hiker

– Eagle County authorities have concluded their search and rescue efforts for a hiker who was separated from his group and hasn't been seen since Friday afternoon.

The sheriff's office said Wednesday the search for 39-year-old James C. McGrogan is now classified as a "recovery mission." Search crews have found no trace of the hiker.

McGrogan's mother, Arlene McGrogan, of Chesterton, Ind., told The (Munster) Times this week her son recently returned to northern Indiana to work in the emergency department of St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Mishawaka, just east of South Bend.

Fellow hikers said McGrogan decided to continue ahead of the group during a break on a trip to the Eiseman Hut north of Vail. McGrogan had a large pack with food, water, medical supplies, a GPS and other tools.
