As officials continue to search for a missing Delta hiker, messages from those who know him continue to pour in on social media.

One friend’s message says they are praying for him, while another says he is missed and loved by many.

Friends say 50-year-old Gordon Sagoo is an experienced hiker.

Edwin Kumar says Sagoo is versed in trail running, mountaineering, and ultra running.

Sagoo was last seen hiking Baby Munday Peak in the Cheam Mountain range on Sunday.

A go-fund-me page has been set-up to benefit the rescuers who are out searching for him, with nearly $6,000 already raised.

There is also a Facebook page set-up for Gordon.

As the search continues, friends on social media are tweeting in support of Mounties and Chilliwack Search and Rescue to bring the man home.

Edwyn Kumar has been friends with Sagoo for 5 years and they often run and hike together, calling him an avid hiker.

On the particular trail Sagoo was on near the Chilliwack river Valley, Kumar says that was a new route for him.

“Kind of a new area for him, some of the lower areas of Chilliwack trails he has explored, but he had the GPS coordinates of where he wanted to go. He was with friends, from talking with them as well, he wasn’t really that far out of sight.”

He was last seen while hiking Baby Munday Peak in the Cheam mountain range on Sunday.
