NEED HELP FINDING A LOST HIKER - California, Sierra Nevada Mountains.

The brother of a high-school friend of my wife's, is missing. He was on a camping/hiking trip in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, in the Mammoth Lake area. He was separated from his friends when his car broke down, and never met back up with them as planned. The hunch is that he went on a hike on his own while waiting for his car repair.

He's been missing for almost a month. It doesn't look good.

News report regarding the incident:
Missing hiker Matthew Greene's family feels helpless | News - Home

Facebook page regarding the search:
https://www.facebook.com/findmattgreene

Anyone who's willing to help search for this man would be greatly appreciated. It'd be great if anyone familiar with the area could try to keep a lookout for this man.

Thanks!

From a fellow hiker and mountaineer, I really hate hearing these types of stories. I pray for Mathews safe return. God bless him, his family and friends.

I sure wish I was closer so I could help. I go there every summer for a hike, and I know how challenging the area can be. Praying for a safe return.

If you'd like to volunteer, of suggest getting in touch with the organizers on the Facebook page I linked. I don't have any other contract info. I do know that a number of Matt's hiking buddies are headed out there to start their own search.

Very sad.Does anyone know if they have cell phones on them? Cell phones have GPS & maybe they can be found that way,but Im sure that was already thought of.
