A winter storm has stopped search and rescue efforts on Tuesday afternoon for an Indiana man who went missing in Vail, Colo., according to The Times of Northwest Indiana.

The Eagle County Sheriff's Department had to suspend the search for 39-year-old James McGrogan of Chesterton, Ind., because the storm brought heavy snow, low visibility and low temperatures. There were more than 50 rescuers and two helicopters that searched the 18 mile area of the Colorado backcountry for any sign of McGrogan, according to WSBT.

No signs of McGrogan were found, and it is unclear when the search will resume.

McGrogan went missing during a hiking trip in the Colorado backcountry on Friday, March 14, when he was separated from his group. He had a large pack with food, medical supplies, a GPS and other tools with him.

McGrogan works in the emergency department of the St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Mishawaka, east of South Bend. He is a husband and father of two children.
