The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office used land, air and water units to look for 45-year-old David Roberts,

Deputies say Roberts, went hiking in a "very remote" part of the county northeast of Apache Junction Monday morning. Authorities located his vehicle and started their search out from that point.

Bloodhounds, a helicopter and lake were out looking for Roberts.
