— Search teams will return to the North Routt County woods Saturday for a fifth day of looking for missing Minnesota hunter Richard Harkins.

Harkins has been missing since Monday, when he did not return to camp near the bases of Meaden Peak and Sand Mountain in the Routt National Forest.

The four other people in his hunting group reported him missing Tuesday night.
