The exact conditions of Dave Brown and Javier Avelar, who failed to return from the trip as scheduled on Sunday, were not immediately known.

One of the two Fullerton firefighters who went missing this weekend in Yosemite National Park was found Tuesday, authorities said. The search continues for the other missing firefighter, Javier Avelar.

Brown had separated from Avelar at some point during their backpacking trip, and crews were continuing an intense search for the remaining missing man, Knabe said.

The two were reported missing Sunday, according to Fullerton-Brea Fire Division Chief Kathy Schaefer.

According to a flyer being distributed in Yosemite National Park, the two men had planned to spend six days backpacking in the park, starting in White Wolf, through Pleasant Valley over Rancheria Mountain.

Brown walked into a park ranger's station Tuesday morning, Knabe said. The pair meant to pass through the Hetchy backpackers' camp, then hike on a road to the Smith Meadow trail, and were supposed to exit through White Wolf on Sunday. They were supposed to emerge from White Wolf on Sunday.

Officials are asking anyone who was in the areas of the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, White Wolf or Smith Meadow on September 6-12 to call authorities.
