(KUTV) -- The Garrett Bardsley Foundation is continuing the search for 66-year-old Ray Humphreys on Sunday and needs more than 500 volunteers.

Volunteers are asked to meet in the Uintas at the Crystal Lake Trailhead at 8 a.m. to start the massive search for the South Jordan man who was last seen Wednesday night around 10 p.m.

Humphreys went to retrieve water to douse a campfire and was not seen again, according to sheriff’s officials.

A Utah Department of Public Safety helicopter searched Thursday from the air as dozens of search and rescue team members began combing the area around Hidden Lake in the Wasatch Cache National Forest.

Dozens searched the area Friday with dogs and horses along with air support from the Civil Air Patrol and the Utah Department of Public Safety. Divers were shuttled by helicopter to begin searching Hidden Lake.

The Foundation stated in a Facebook post that though an estimated 100 volunteers help search the area Saturday that more volunteers are needed.

The Facebook post stated:

... we still have a lot of ground to cover and can use as much help as we can possibly get.

Anyone who sees Humphreys is asked to call the Summit County Sheriff’s Office at 435-615-3600.
