TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Search and rescue teams are looking for a hiker who went missing while on Mt. Lemmon.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department says 30-year-old Christopher Paul Elia was reported missing Saturday afternoon when he failed to show up for dinner plans with family.

Authorities say Elia went to Mt. Lemmon around 2 p.m. to hike the Blue Spring Trail.

His family says Elia suffered a traumatic brain injury several years ago and needs to take seizure medication.

He is described as white, 5-foot-6, 140 pounds with short black hair and blue eyes.

He also has several tattoos including a map of Ireland on his chest and the words “Many Miles” on his feet.
