PINEDALE, Wyo. -

Helicopters and ground crews are again searching Wyoming's Wind River Range for the brother of Colorado Sen. Mark Udall.

James "Randy" Udall failed to return from a solo backpacking trip last week. Searchers on Tuesday were looking for signs of the 61-year-old over the same 225 square mile area they've been searching since Friday.
    
Udall is an alternative energy advocate and environmentalist from Carbondale, Colo. He's an experienced backpacker who has hiked the Wind River many times over the past 30 years.
    
He signed June 20 in at the popular Elkhart Park trailhead, a well-marked trail over rolling country that starts at 10,000 feet.
    
Udall is also the cousin of New Mexico Sen. Tom Udall and the son of the late 15-term Arizona congressman and Interior Secretary Morris Udall.
