Police Investigators say body armor and survivalist gear was found in the suspect's abandoned car.
Officials are looking for 24-year old Benjamin Barnes who, according to court records, may be suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. Visitors to the National Park have been locked down as officials search for the suspect.
