Hanley says common walkways and open areas have lost snow cover, but that the lingering cold is making ground search conditions difficult in some areas where the snow and ice are still 18 inches deep.
Nicholas Garza of Albuquerque, New Mexico, was last seen after leaving a party. Extensive searches, including the use of ground-penetrating radar, have been fruitless so far.
