UTAH ” There were still no more signs of Rose Backhaus in the Goblin Valley State Park late Wednesday.

Emery County Sheriff Lamar Guymon said dogs were helping search Little Wild Horse Canyon Wednesday and helicopters had to leave due to an approaching storm.

Backhaus was last seen Nov. 16 in Moab, Utah. Authorities found her burgundy Ford Explorer parked at a trailhead 70 miles west in the Goblin Valley State Park on Monday but haven’t yet found Backhaus. Notes in her car reportedly said she arrived at the state park Nov. 16 and was happy.

Guymon said the trail leads to a series of slot canyons.
