    The Toronto Professional Fire Fighters’ Association (TPFFA) told Global News Thursday that Filippidis went to the village, most known for hosting the 1980 Winter Olympics, for vacation and was joined by friends, family and other off-duty and retired firefighters.
    TPFFA president Frank Ramagnano said the group was skiing down Whiteface Mountain when they noticed he never made it down the hill after the chairlifts shut down at 4 p.m. on Wednesday.

    State officials said they started a search at 4:30 p.m. led by Department of Environmental Conservation forest rangers in co-ordination with New York State Police and Whiteface Mountain staff.
    State police are asking skiers and snowboarders at Whiteface Mountain to report anything out of the ordinary.

    Anyone with information is urged to contact the mountain’s ski patrol or call the New York State Police at 518-873-2750.

    "The search is continuing today for Danny. We have 96 people on the ground involved with the search today," Lundin said.

    "We've been starting the searches a little bit after 8 o'clock in the morning and they've been ending as soon as the last assignment has been brought down the mountain.
    "We're encouraging people to be on the lookout for Danny, and if they do see something that may be out of the ordinary, to come down to our ski patrol and notify them and or notify the New York State Police," he said.

    Constantinos “Danny” Filippidis, 49, went missing from Whiteface Mountain in upstate New York on Feb. 7

    CBC News Posted: Feb 13, 2018
    "The circumstances regarding this case are under investigation, and further details will be released at a later time," the police statement said.

    Shortly after police issued their statement, Toronto Fire Chief Matthew Pegg said Filippidis's colleagues "are all very relieved to know that he is safe" following the search.

    "Although details are limited at this time, we have been advised that he is in the care of police in Sacramento," Pegg's statement, released over Twitter, said.

    "As this is now the subject of an ongoing investigation, I am unable to provide further comment."
    Frank Ramagnano, president of the Toronto Professional Fire Fighters Association (TPFFA), said in a statement that Filippidis made contact with his wife earlier this afternoon.

    "She was communicating with him from the Command Centre and the State Police were working to try and secure his safety," Ramagnano's statement said.

    wow, sounds like this could be something more nefarious than a man needing a break for a while.

    "I'm told that he still had the same clothing that he was skiing in. And the authorities seemed to indicate that it looked like he had been in those clothes since he had been missing."

    In ski clothes in Sac for the last week?? There's no way that could have been comfortable or even something someone would do on purpose. It's been in the mid 60's the last week there.
