Rangers are looking for Jessica Rose Garcia who did not show up for work at the Wawona Hotel on Saturday. She was last seen along Forest Drive after an orientation meeting with her supervisor.

She was dressed in her work uniform -- a dark green polo shirt, black pants, and a dark green park jacket. She's described as an Hispanic female 5' 3" tall and approximately 170 pounds.

Tuesday, search and rescue crews included six dog teams, a park helicopter, Rangers on horse back, and 23 Rangers on foot. The search area includes the South Fork of the Merced River and in and around the Wawona area.
