    This still makes so little sense to me.
    This was a small fire, this isn't a fire that would have overtaken him.

    Did he not have a way to communicate with the other firefighters? (Yes radio and cell phone.)
    Did they find his ATV? (No)
    Did he know his way around the area? (Yes)

    He's 41 years old, how long has he been a firefighter? (Don't know.)
    Is it just rugged terrain, or is it potentially fatal terrain (cliffs and stuff.)

    Rescue crews said the last known contact with Adams was a phone call to his wife Friday around 1 p.m.
    "We have a good idea of where that call was made from, so we focused a search pretty heavily today with our search dogs into that area,"
    explained Wes Crownover, State Police Incident Commander.

    ------------------------

    Fellow firefighters said they never heard a call for help from Adams. So far, his ATV has not turned up.

    ------------------------

    Officials said Adams has survival gear, such as food and water, and they're staying hopeful they'll find him safely.

    -----------------------

    Search crews say Adams is familiar with the area, but there has been no signal from him on cell phone or radio.

    Missing man's mother joins the search

    Since Friday the search party for Adams has grown to close to 300 people. A Type One Team was briefed Tuesday afternoon. That team is more experienced and prepared to deal with more complex situations in trickier terrain.......

    Adam’s has a young song and another child due this month.

    Adams is a former hot shot crew member and has food and water. His survival skills are keeping search crews hopeful.

    Another focus of hope is that it has not gotten too cold in the area overnight and has stayed in the 50s.

    The search for a firefighter missing in the Jemez Mountains is now in its sixth day having turned up nothing.

    Adams is a Navy veteran who trained as SEAL.

    Maybe he wanted to disappear. Maybe his home life was getting stressful.

    What happens if firefighters disappear while fighting a fire and no body is recovered? Do the families receive any benefits?
