ASPEN, Colo. (AP) -- Searchers are stepping up their efforts to find a skier who has been missing for a week.

The Pitkin County Sheriff's Office decided Wednesday to send a team to check for signs of 55-year-old Jeff Walker in an out-of-bounds area near the Aspen Highlands ski resort.

According to the Aspen Daily News, the Pitkin County Sheriff's Office and Mountain Rescue Aspen suspended their search at the end of the day Monday. Searchers say they plan to cover new territory.

Walker's last known location was a scan of his ski pass at the base chairlift on March 7. He was reported missing Saturday evening.
