Nicholas Smith set out around 8 am on Monday to hike deep into Upper Bidwell Park in Chico. Around 5 pm, he called the Chico Police to indicate he was lost and his phone only had 1 percent of battery left.

On Tuesday morning, search and rescue crews embarked into the park to find the 31-year-old hiker, believed to be located near the Northern, Yahi, Middle and B Trails.

Search crews were stationed at Monkey Face near Horseshoe Lake in hopes of seeing the hiker, and weather cleared Tuesday morning to allow for a helicopter unit to aid in the search.

Smith is described as a 6″2′ male weighing 200 pounds with a shaved head and full beard. The Chico Police Department is asking anyone who saw him in Upper Bidwell Park area to call their office at (530) 897-4912.
