Authorities look for missing biker

MALIBU -- Sheriff's deputies Wednesday searched the Santa Monica Mountains recreation area for a 47-year-old mountain biker who was reported missing late Tuesday night.

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies with the Malibu-Lost Hills station say they are not reporting the missing man's name, but earlier reports say Wayne Crowley told his family he was heading out for a bike ride around noon Tuesday.

The area is frequented by hikers and bikers who sometimes head off the trails, Lt. Debra Glafkides said.
