MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) — Police in the Upper Peninsula are searching for a Northern Michigan University student who went missing on a hiking trip to photograph waterfalls.

The search for 25-year-old Guiancarlo Estupigan was suspended Friday evening but was set to resume Saturday in Marquette County’s Ishpeming Township.

WLUC-TV reports that Estupigan’s roommate told the county sheriff’s office that he left Thursday afternoon for a hike near along the Yellow Dog River to take photographs of waterfalls.

When Estupigan failed to return, the roommate went searching and found Estupigan’s vehicle in the Yellow Dog parking lot. The roommate reported him missing Friday afternoon.

Estupigan is a sophomore studying fish and wildlife management.

Anyone with information on Estupigan is asked to call 911 or the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office, at 906-225-8435.
