CHAMA, N.M. (AP) — More than two dozen search and rescue workers are combing the mountains of northern New Mexico in search of a Tres Piedras man.

The search for 55-year-old Neda Labjevardi began last [auth] Sunday when his wife was rescued by a group of hunters after spending several days in the wilderness. Authorities say the couple became separated after their vehicle got stuck near Chama and they tried to find help.

The volunteer searchers said Friday they were concerned about thunderstorms and snow showers that were forecast for the area overnight and through Saturday.

In southwestern New Mexico, crews continued their search for 43-year-old Steven Lockhart of Costa Mesa, Calif. Authorities say he has been missing since Oct. 19, when he became separated from fellow hikers in the Gila National Forest.
