(WHAS11)-- Authorities are looking for a missing off-duty firefighter in California.
Authorities said that Michael Herdman, 34, was hiking with a friend last friday when his dog ran away and he went after it.
Herdman was barefoot at the time and only wearing shorts and a t-shirt.
It took his friend two days to hike out of the area to get help.
Crews have been flown into the wilderness and they say they found his gear, but not him.
