JEMEZ SPRINGS — Token Adams, a U.S. Forest Service firefighter who vanished Friday in the Jemez Mountains, is a smart, kind-hearted family man experienced in wilderness survival, according to acquaintances and co-workers who struggled to maintain cautious optimism Wednesday, as the search for Adams marked its fifth day without success.

Kevin Dahl, whose uncle rents a home to Adams in Jemez Springs, echoed the frustrations of many others in the village when he spoke about the mystery that began when Adams failed to return from a mission to find the perimeter of a small forest fire about five miles west of Jemez Springs.
