Calif. authorities search for missing Pa. hiker

MAMMOTH LAKES, Calif. (AP) - Authorities in California are searching for a hiker from Pennsylvania who has been missing for more than a week in the Mammoth Lakes area just outside of Yosemite National Park.

Mono County Sheriff's spokeswoman Jennifer Hansen said search and rescue crews have searched around Mount Ritter and Banner Peak in the eastern Sierra for 39-year-old Matthew Greene. Greene was reported missing on July 29 after he did not meet up with friends as planned.

Family members told officials Greene, of Bethlehem, Pa., is an avid sportsman and was passing through the Mammoth Lakes area to do some hiking and camping and climb peaks.
