A Colorado man whose daughter is overdue from a trek in Nepal is traveling there to try to find her.
Paul Sacco of Greeley had a flight Monday to Nepal. He and his wife haven't heard from their 23-year-old daughter, Aubrey Sacco, since April 20, when she e-mailed plans of hiking alone through Nepal's Langtang region. She planned to finish around April 30, but while she was in Langtang National Park, protests and strikes demanding the resignation of Nepal's prime minister shut down businesses, transportation and much of the local communication networks.
She had been scheduled to fly Saturday from Nepal to Sri Lanka, but no recent sightings of her have been reported.
Aubrey Sacco graduated from the University of Colorado last year.
