At approximately 12noon on Friday February 2nd, a call came in for two lost hikers in Millard Canyon. Team members responded and began to search an area based on information received.
After more than an hour into the search, the missing hikers were located off trail, on a steep hillside. The two had hiked to Millard Canyon waterfall and were attempting to reach Dawn Mine when they lost sight of the trail and became stranded.
A hand line was set up, and both hikers were helped off the mountain by rescue team members. This operation concluded at approximately 3:30PM
These two victims made the right decision by calling for help. When you lose sight of the trail, and end up in a location where forward progress is impossible, and backtracking is too dangerous, it is best to call for help. Had these victims lost their footing, they could have fallen hundreds of feet down the mountain.
