SEDONA, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities in northern Arizona are searching for a hiker missing since last week near Sedona.

Coconino County Sheriff's officials say 22-year-old Thomas Lang was last seen Wednesday at the Manzanita Campground in Oak Creek Canyon.

They say he was carrying a red sleeping bag, a white tarp, a guitar and a blue backpack.

Search-and-rescue teams from the county and Yavapai County sheriff's offices were conducting a joint operation Monday in the hopes of locating Lang.
