The search for Ty Sauer continues.

The Shenandoah National Park sent out an update Sunday saying Sauer may be wearing gray Nike shorts with black stripes, calf-high white socks and yellow hospital booties with non-slip threads.

Park officials say staff, 15 search and rescue cooperators, five dog teams and a helicopter fly-over are supporting the search.

Hannah Run Trail, Catlett Spur Trail, Catlett Mountain Trail, Corbin Cabin Cutoff, Nicholson Hollow and Hazel Mountain Trail are all closed until further notice while teams continue to search those areas.

Shenandoah National Park (SNP) took to Facebook to share the details of an 18-year-old male that was reportedly last seen at mile 35 on Skyline Drive on the evening of Thursday, April 22.

According to the Facebook post, Ty Sauer, 18, of New Jersey, was last seen wearing a blue hoodie, blue Christmas pajama bottoms and white tennis shoes.

SNP’s poster says Sauer is 6′3″ and weighs 187 pounds, with short, dirty blond hair and brown eyes. Sauer also wears glasses.
