A 60-year-old hiker has gone missing in Colorado after failing to return from a trip that took place between July 22nd and July 25th. It is believed the man, identified as Terry Pann of Nathrop, went missing in the area of Ice Mountain amid the Three Apostles near Winfield, Colorado.

Search and rescue teams have been using hikers, drones, and aerial teams to conduct a multi-day search for Pann, though they have encountered some weather-related difficulties along the way. On Saturday, four-member "hasty" team had to stop their search due to poor visibility and storms above treeline. Limited weather windows have been present throughout the search.

Searchers plan to continue as weather permits. Individuals of the public are asked not to join in on the search as the terrain in this area is rugged, technical, and very dangerous.

The Three Apostles are a group of thirteeners near Huron Peak. The group consists of Ice Mountain (13,961 feet), North Apostle (13,860 feet), and West Apostle (13,568 feet).

Terry Pann is described as a 60-year-old caucasian male that's approximately 5'8" with a lean build.

He looks fit enough to do the hike, but a slip in difficult terrain, and your injured

Hiking the wilds by yourself is very foolish, especially for females. This folly may have cost him his life.

Hiking alone is very reckless.;may have gotten hurt or fallen ill. Looks like a male hiker got lost, so why mention females??
