Zion National Park, Utah — Thursday Zion National Park will close a popular section of the park for a search and rescue operation.
According to park spokesperson Amanda Rowland, the search is being conducted to look for an overdue hiker.

The gender and identity of the hiker, as well as how long they have been missing are still not released.
It is not known if the search and rescue will take place in other areas of the park.
