LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Authorities are searching for a Henderson woman who was last seen hiking in Lake Mead National Recreation Area with a man who was found dead last week.
Family and friends of 35-year-old Christina Montes told rangers on Friday she was planning to camp with 62-year-old James Johnson Jr., also of Henderson.
National Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover, in a statement Friday, says the two reportedly left on June 3 without sufficient food and water for a 3-mile hike to Arizona Hot Spring.
Johnson's body was found on June 5 near the Colorado River close to Arizona Hot Spring, but there were no signs of her.
The park service discourages hiking to Arizona Hot Spring during the summer due to excessive heat. The strenuous trail offers no shade or potable water.
