TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif - It's been nearly two weeks since David Ura's family last saw him.

Ura's daughter said goodbye last Thursday when he set off from Ides Cove Trailhead, west of Red Bluff.

But when she didn't hear from him, she knew something went wrong.

"For my dad to go missing on a hike that he's been planning for about a year is just crazy. It doesn’t make sense to me.”

Since then the family has been in constant communication with the Tehama County Sheriff's Office.

But due to the rugged terrain of this trail, the detective says they've opted for aerial searches using both CHP and the National Guard resources

“This trail it is very rugged it would take an incredibly experienced hiker to do it. In reading about it there are portions that are not really recognizable as a trail and he may have veered off course," said Tehama County Detective Rob Bakken.

Bakken tells Action News Now CHP Northern Division searched for over an hour on Tuesday.

Meanwhile the National Guard spent more than five hours on Wednesday.

Neither organization could find Ura or their family dog Kingsley within 144 square miles.

“A good search of the area and did not turn up any sign on him,” Bakken.

The family says Ura is an experienced hiker and did take enough water and food to last his entire trip and detectives say they're still hopeful in a safe recovery.

“That would depend on his skill level as a hiker and a survivalist. There are also several areas identified where someone could get water along the trail. So we are hopeful but like we said at this time we do not have any sign of him,” said Bakken.

The sheriff’s office will be meeting with the family on Thursday to see how they would like to continue this search.

In the meantime the family has been doing ground searches and has started a go fund me account to help.
