Search and recovery underway near Rustler Park

Forest Service officials are asking hikers and visitors to avoid the Rustler Park area in the Chirichahua Mountains for the time being.

Officials say a search and recovering effort is taking place and temporary closures may be implemented.

"Coronado National Forest is in a supportive role to Cochise County Sheriff's Office to ensure county officials and private individuals have a safe environment in which to conduct the search," Forest Service Public Affairs Officer Heidi Schewel said in a media release.
