CO - James Nelson - 31 years old - Holy Cross City - 3 Oct 2010

Colorado officials fear an experienced Chicago hiker not seen since leaving for a solo hiking trip a week ago could be in danger because he was not familiar with the treacherous hiking path near Vail.

James Nelson, 31, a member of the Chicago Backpackers Meetup Group, set out Oct. 3 on a five day, 25-mile hike of Mount Holy Cross, said Shannon Cordingly, a spokeswoman with the Eagle County Sheriff's office. Authorities launched a search when he did not return on Friday.

James Nelson made Eagle Scout as a boy in Iowa, and he carried the organization's "leave no trace" principle into adulthood.

Some of you have asked for an update on my online backpacking acquaintance James Nelson of Chicago. He went missing in the Holy Cross Wilderness area near Vail, Colorado, sometime shortly after Oct. 3. That's the day he headed up the trail into the rugged wilderness.
