LAS VEGAS (AP) — A weekend search of rugged hiking routes to a Colorado River hot spring where a Nevada man was found dead earlier this month failed to turn up evidence about the whereabouts of a Henderson woman who authorities were told may have hiked with him.

Lake Mead National Recreation Area spokeswoman Christie Vanover said Monday that authorities aren't sure whether 35-year-old Christina Diane Montes accompanied 62-year-old James Edward Johnson Jr. to Arizona Hot Spring on June 3.

Johnson's body was found June 5 near the end of the challenging 6-mile hike from a U.S. 93 parking area where his vehicle was found.

Vanover says about 20 hikers from the National Park Service, Arizona Department of Public Safety and Mohave County Search and Rescue found no sign of Montes on Saturday.
