A hiker from San Diego and his female companion are missing on Mount Rainier.

Park rangers say the 37-year-old man and 30-year-old woman were supposed to return hiking equipment on Sunday and the woman, who is from Atlanta, was due to fly out Sunday night.

It’s unclear at this time when the search efforts will begin. Park rangers say it was too dark to start a search Monday night and the weather is expected to be bad on Tuesday.

The couple is believed to be experienced hikers.
