It has now been 12 days since David Ura went missing after heading out to hike the Bigfoot Trail in Tehama County, California.
His family has been putting up flyers in hopes someone might have seen or heard something.

May Ura, David's daughter is devastated. "I want my dad back," May pleads with tears in her eyes. "And you know, I'm his baby bear and I want him back."

David works at the REI in Medford. When his co-workers heard he was missing, many volunteered their time to help look for him. Joseph and Ann Smith re-routed their planned trip to hike part of the trails where he might have gone.

"The outdoor community is a close-knit community," explains Joseph. "When one person in the outdoors needs help, everyone just jumps in and does what they have to to help."

They say the hike is very rugged and difficult. They say it's easy to see how someone could get lost, especially if they weren't using GPS. David was using a map and compass.

The Tehama County Sheriff's office says they are looking for David in an area of 144 square miles but they haven't put anyone on the ground yet. They explain they've been trying to spot something from the air so they can narrow their search.

Still, David's family isn't waiting. They are heading to Ides Cove Trailhead and they are asking for the public's help.

The Sheriff's office wants to remind the public that such a trail requires experienced hikers and that there is safety in numbers.

David's family has also set up a go-fund-me account at https://www.gofundme.com/help-us-look-for-our-lost-father
