Authorities are searching for a missing hiker in the north Georgia mountains.
Rabun County authorities said Thursday that 56-year-old Richard Arnold "Rick" Masters of Kennesaw disappeared, possibly while hiking in the Kelsey Mountain/Bartram Trail area.
Sheriff's officials said several agencies have been using aircraft and dogs to search trails in the area. They're also distributing photos of Masters to others hikers.
Rabun County Sheriff Frank Andrews tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Masters was reported missing by his brother Ken Masters of Acworth on July 21.
A week ago, sheriff's deputies found the missing hiker's vehicle -- a dark blue, late 1990s-model Jeep Cherokee -- unoccupied at the end of Kelsey Mountain Road. Investigators say no signs of foul play were found on the vehicle.
