    The Duchesne County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who has gone missing on what was to be a 100-mile hike.

    Eric Robinson, a 63-year-old Australian, was hiking the 100-mile High Line trail through the Uinta Mountains, the sheriff’s office said in a press release.

    He began his hike July 28 from Duchesne and was expected to arrive Sunday at the High Line trail head near Mirror Lake. The sheriff’s office said he is carrying a red pack.

    Eric Robinson is five days overdue. His wife, who recently arrived in Utah from Melbourne, says his plans were to hike in the Uintas for 10 days and then return on Sunday. That didn't happen, and no one has heard from him. She says it's not like him to just disappear.

    Marilyn Koolstra says her husband came to Utah to visit friends he met while hiking the Highline Trail six years ago. He was supposed to fly to Vancouver Island two days ago.

    I just did a search for a description of the trail and what wildlife (mountain lion came to mind) he might encounter, and found a detailed description of a solo Highline Trail Trip in a blog. No lions, but the writer who took this trip in July of last year does mention moose and black bear. And 13,000 ft elevation, which is rugged. At that elevation it takes me half an hour to tie my hiking boots! I hope they find him, and wonder what happened with the friends.

    "Whilst he's now six days overdue, it's really been two weeks since there's been anything. Needless to say we're very concerned now."

    The Duchesne County Sheriff's Office has been searching the area for the past four days, using horses, a helicopter and a volunteer force of hikers, the KSL.com website reported.
