Search suspended for missing hiker in Custer County

Officials have suspended their search for a missing hiker in Custer County, near Westcliffe.  

Mark Stice, of Arvada, was first reported missing last Saturday by his wife after not returning from a camping trip.  His vehicle and a fishing rod were found near a trailhead outside Westcliffe, but Custer County search crews say they were not able to find any other clues to help them find Stice.  Searchers say they spent 8 days looking for Stice, but had to endure difficult terrain, snowfall, ice, and freezing temperatures.  

Stice was reportedly an experienced hiker, but he did not leave a detailed itinerary for family members, and was not carrying a cell phone or emergency locator beacon.
