A 39-year-old Bethlehem teacher is missing in the area of Mammoth Lakes, CA. Matthew Greene arrived in Mammoth Lakes around June 27 to hike, camp, and climb peaks in the Eastern Sierra. According to his family and friends, Greene is an avid hiker, as well as a rock and ice climber. According to his family, Greene, a Nazareth High school math teacher, usually goes on a trip every summer.

The Mammoth Lakes Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance to locate Greene. On Monday, a missing persons report was taken on Greene. The last known person to have contact with Greene talked to him on July 16. He was camping at Shady Rest Campground while his vehicle was being repaired at a local shop. He has not returned to Shady Rest Campground or picked up his car from the repair shop. Greene is  5’11”,  weighs 155 pounds, with brownish-blonde short hair and brown eyes. It is believed that he may have gotten a ride from someone to a remote area to hike or climb. The Mono County Search and Rescue Team has been notified, but without a last known location, the team cannot initiate a search.
