Brian Napoli, 24, called friends at 4:51 p.m. Monday to say he was lost in the canyon, which has a 5.3-mile hiking trail, the sheriff's department reported.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Tom Bryski said 10-12 searchers looked in the area just west of the Golden State (5) Freeway near Santa Clarita until about 1:15 a.m. today, when the search was temporarily called off. The search resumed at daybreak.
