Cheyenne, Wyo. (AP) - An acclaimed American poet who'd been working on a book about volcanoes is missing on a tropical island in southern Japan.
Craig Arnold, who teaches at the University of Wyoming, disappeared five days ago during a scouting expedition.
Police reported finding Arnold's tracks on a trail up the volcano, but they couldn't find any tracks coming down.
And the thick terrain is making helicopter searches virtually useless.
Anold has published two award-winning collections of poetry: “Shells” in 1999, and “Made Flesh,” which came out last year.
Japanese law only requires authorities to look for missing people for three days, but University of Wyoming officials say the search will continue through Sunday.
