RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming authorities have suspended the search for a Wyoming man missing for more than a week.

KTWO-AM reports that the Carbon County sheriff's office spent a week searching for 44-year-old Mark Strittmater after he did not return from a solo hunting trip Oct. 19.

Authorities say Strittmater went into the Medicine Bow National Forest alone and was reported missing Oct. 20.

Authorities say they used air patrol and search dogs in efforts to find him before spending the search at 5 p.m. Saturday.

Strittmater is white; 5 feet, 8 inches tall (173 centimeters) and weighs 130 pounds (59 kilograms). He has brown hair and blue eyes.

He was last seen Oct. 19 wearing a light-colored camouflage long-sleeved shirt with gray or green pants, boots and an orange hunting cap.
