Bears or mountain lion?

Possible but incredibly unlikely. Most likely is that he fell. Just because he was last seen on a meadow doesn't mean that is where he ended up. I've been in meadows with spotty snow where a misstep could send a person sliding to a cliff hundreds of yards away.

Besides, when someone disappears the chances of it being due to an animal is much much much less than the chance that it was due to another person.

Although animals probably make finding the remains more difficult.
