Missing El Dorado Hiker: 1 Week Later

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.


Searchers from nearly every northern California county have shown up to El Dorado County to help, as they continue to look for 23-year-old Cody Matthews, who has been missing for 1 week.

On Friday, the search expanded to the east and northern part of the park, but if nothing develops by evening, the search will be scaled back.

Meanwhile, the dive team continued to search in the south fork of the American River.

As they search on the ground, two choppers from CHP and Placer County are looking from above.

Despite this being a week since his disappearance, volunteers remain hopeful.
