In heavy rain Guardia Civil officers then searched for him, but could not find him, and the hiker’s phone had been disconnected. 

They had to call off the search about 11pm due to a lack of light.

Officers also went to an address, where according to the hiker, his parents lived, but there was no one in the house. 

The search resumed on Friday with Guardia Civil officers assisted with a helicopter and specialist mountain crews.
