The threat of severe weather in the mountains has canceled a search for a missing hiker in Nelson County.
Rescuers have been looking for the hiker on the Appalachian Trail near Tyro in Nelson County.
WVIR-TV reports that the search is focusing on the Tyro area a couple miles north of Roseland.
The search began Monday afternoon after the Nelson County Sheriff's Office received a report that there had been two-way radio contact with a man who had fallen into a ravine on the Appalachian Trail.
Sheriff David Brooks' office didn't immediately return a telephone message Tuesday morning.
