Brian Spalding went missing more than a week and a half ago.
Many have been searching for him but the terrain has made it extremely difficult.
"Yesterday was pretty much the biggest day we had for resources," said Tom Totland, Park County Sheriff's Office lieutenant. "We had approximately 50 personnel that were here trying to search."
Officials discovered Spalding's car near a Park County trailhead and are concentrating the search in the Pine Creek and George Lake area.
Search teams are looking for Spalding from the air and on the ground with the help of dogs.
Lieutenant Tom Totland says there are more places to look before calling off the search.
"What we want to do before we even think about getting close to that is make sure that we've exhausted every possible access or resource that we have or area that we could search. That's what we're doing," Totland said.
Officials have not yet decided when they will call off the search. We are told that the Sheriff will talk to the family before making that decision.
Authorities are asking anyone who may have seen Spalding to contact Livingston dispatch at 222-2050.
