A hiker is missing near Utah's Goblin State Park.

UTAH — Authorities found the vehicle Monday afternoon of a New Castle woman who went missing during a hiking trip to Moab, Utah, on Nov. 16.

Rose Backhaus, 54, was last seen checking out of the La Quinta Inn around 8 a.m. in Moab Nov. 16. Friends, family and a co-worker said it was extremely unusual that she didn’t return home Sunday night or to work early Monday morning as planned.

Emery County Sheriff’s Capt. Kyle Ekker said Backhaus’ Ford Explorer was found in the Goblin Valley area south of Green River.

“We’re in the middle of a search. We’re trying to get a helicopter up,” Ekker said around 4 p.m. Monday.

Lets hope she gets home for Thanksgiving.
