The search for a San Antonio man continued over the weekend after he was reported missing on Friday in Colorado.

Authorities believe Troy Green, 39, was hiking at the Rocky Mountain National Park before he disappeared.

Sunday marked day three for search and rescue crews, as they combed the trails looking for Green.

Green, his wife, Sandra and their daughter are from San Antonio. Green was in Denver for a conference and Green's wife contacted Denver police when she did not hear from him Thursday, Colorado authorities said. Green also did not show up to the conference on Friday.  

Police sent an advisory out for his rental car, which later matched a description of a car found abandoned at the Rocky Mountain National Park, by several trails.

"I'm surprised that he's missing," said Lea Robinson, a friend of the family. "I'm not surprised that he took the opportunity to go, while he was there, to go out and do the hiking, not surprised at all by that."

While the search continues, friends and loved ones are logging onto "Find Troy Green" on Facebook to keep up with any updates as they pray for his safe return.
"We're hoping for the best," said Robinson. "(I'm) crossing my fingers that something happened that they are going to be able to find him and he'll be OK and he can come home."

The latest update posted Sunday afternoon stated that they were encouraged by a tip that was called in Saturday night.

According to that Facebook post, there was a man reporting that he had talked to Troy about a certain trail. About 45 searchers went over that trail on Sunday.

Park rangers are asking anyone who visited the Bear Lake area of the Rocky Mountain National Park on Thursday to call the Rocky Mountain National Park at (970) 586-1204.
