Authorities say they're searching for a missing Tucson man after his car was found at a campground near Portal.

Cochise County Sheriff's officials say 69-year-old Lawrence Kosden was reported missing on Sept. 17.

He reportedly hasn't been heard from since Sept. 14.

Sheriff's officials say Kosden's car was found at the Rustler's Park Campground late Sunday afternoon and it had not been moved for days.

They say the vehicle had a campground parking permit on it that was good only for Sept. 13 and 14.

Authorities believe Kosden may have gone for a hike in the campground area and search crews continue to look for him.
