    Saeed Emadi (66) reported missing from El Dorado National Forest since 7/8/2020

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) ? A northern California man who disappeared after accidentally separating from his friends during a hike remains missing despite a weekend search by authorities.

    A group of roughly 70 law enforcement officers and volunteers searched Saturday for Saeed Emadi. Emadi was hiking July 8 at Ice House Reservoir, located 78 miles (126 kilometers) from Sacramento, when he inadvertently split from the group he was with, his three daughters, Zhila, Lena and Roya, according to reports.

    The 66-year-old from San Ramon, California called his friends after he became lost from a hill that overlooks the reservoir, but his phone battery was low and cell reception was patchy. His friends promptly called the county sheriff?s office to report him missing.

    Since then, a search group equipped with helicopters and drones has attempted to locate Emadi.

    Footprints found near the reservoir?s Strawberry Point matched the sneakers Emadi was wearing. Another sign emerged when more footprints were found more than a mile away. Emadi?s family is optimistic, saying the presence of natural springs of clean water nearby could keep a hiker alive for an extended period.

    ?He?s very strong-willed and we definitely believe that he would keep fighting and he?s not going to quit,? Roya Emadi said.

    EL DORADO COUNTY, Calif. ? After being missing for over a week, a family is asking for help in finding an El Dorado man who went missing on July 8 on his hiking trip at the Strawberry Point campgrounds near the Ice House Reservoir.

    Saeed Emadi's friend reported him missing after he separated from his group while hiking around the Ice House Reservoir, El Dorado County Sheriff's officials said. Roya Emadi, Saeed's youngest daughter, said he went on a day hike with a friend after camping with another friend

    Roya said Saeed and his friend walked down Silver creek to where the water poured into the reservoir. Wanting to get a better view of the lake, Saeed decided to cross Silver creek to get a better view of the lake.

    After getting a good vantage point of the reservoir, he learned he couldn't get back down, Roya said. Roya said Saeed walked further, thinking there was a road that circled back.

    "I think I'm lost. I can't find my way back to where you are," Saeed told his friend on the phone, according to Roya. Saeed's friend then called 911, Roya said.

    Sheriff officials described Saeed as 6'2 and 190 pounds. Saeed wore a gray baseball cap, white button-up shirt, light stripe shorts, and blue tennis shoes, officials said.

    National Guard and California Highway Patrol helicopters searched the area but still haven't found him, sheriff officials said.

    Roya said there is a glimmer of hope after a search party found shoe prints that they were able to track them back to the local Costco, where he purchased them.

    Officials said Saeed has diabetes and probably does not have his mediation with him.
