Search ended for Michigan man lost in Hawaii blizzard

By Associated Press

MAUNA KEA, Hawaii (AP) _ Family and firefighters are giving up their search for a 67-year-old Michigan man who disappeared earlier this month in a blizzard atop Hawaii's Mauna Kea.

Brian Murphy of the Detroit suburb of Plymouth went missing December fifth after he told an employee at a 9,000-foot-level visitors center that he wanted to hike to the 13,796-foot summit.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for the summit a few hours later, and a friend reported him missing that night.

Murphy's sisters-in-law, Sarah O'Hare and Bridget Wallman, traveled from Detroit to join in the search but they planned to fly home today.

Firefighters called off their search yesterday after acknowledging the difficulty of finding someone in such a vast area.
