Scouring the wilderness, search and rescue crews are in the air, and on the ground in Chama.

They're searching for missing 56-year-old Ned Labjevardi.   

He went missing in the area with his wife a week ago.

Images from a Civil Air Patrolman show an incredible view from an aircraft searching for Labjevardi.

The wilderness north of Chama seems to ripple out like a disturbed pond, and somewhere in there search and rescue crews believe is 56-year-old Ned Labjevardi.   

Last Tuesday, Oct. 15, he was separated from his wife when their car became stuck. She was found by some hunters in the area, and was treated by medics. She is said to be OK.

Meantime, crews face challenges beyond the rocks and the hills. The Tuesday to Wednesday overnight low in Chama is a frigid 24 to 29 degrees.

Civil Air Patrol crews from Colorado are assisting too.

New Mexico State Police are in charge of the search, and we're pursuing an update from them at this hour as well.
