IRON COUNTY, Utah — Search and rescue crews are looking for a man who went missing in Iron County.

Daniel Brown, 34, was traveling with his wife and four children on Monday when their vehicle got stuck on a mountain road in the Kane Springs area, northwest of Parowan, according to a press release from Iron County Sheriff’s Office.

At about 4 p.m., Brown left the car to look for help. He was wearing a blue t-shirt, blue jeans and athletics shoes, the release indicates. Brown’s wife and children remained with the vehicle.

On Tuesday, Brown had not returned to his family. At that time, Brown’s wife called for help.

At about 10:55 a.m., deputies hiked to the car and found the mother and four kids cold but in good condition, the release states. They were taken back to the Cedar City area.

At 11 a.m., a search began for Brown. Snowfall, wind, fog and rain have hampered search efforts, but it will continue as weather permits, according to the release.

Brown does have survival skills.

Iron County Search and Rescue, Iron County Volunteers in Police Services, Bureau of Land Management, United States Forest Service, Upper Limit Aviation and sheriff’s deputies are involved in the search.

      Supposedly, she didn’t notice that he’d left his cellphone behind in the car’s console.
      He may have “survival skills” but I don’t think a lot of thinking skills went into this decision to camp out in the mountains in bad weather.
      What was he going to do? Poach deer to feed the family, camped out there on public lands?
      Why not head to a warmer climate an hour south?
