JEMEZ PUEBLO, N.M. (AP) — A firefighter missing for a week in a rugged New Mexico forest has been found dead.
Authorities on Friday afternoon said that 41-year-old Token Adams was killed in an apparent crash of his ATV on a mesa.
The 41-year-old engine crew captain disappeared Aug. 30 while checking on a report of smoke.
Hundreds of volunteers, firefighters, search and rescue teams and the Civil Air Patrol have spent the past week combing some 50 square miles of mesa tops and steep canyons east of Jemez (HAY'-muhs) Springs for Adams.
Despite the rugged terrain, searchers had remained hopeful of finding him alive because Adams, who grew up on the edge of the Sierra National Forest in California, was an experienced outdoorsman with extensive survival skills.
