Missing Hiker, 15, Found Safe And Sound

MALIBU (CBS) — Officials Sunday said a missing 15-year-old hiker was found safe and sound.

Authorities say the boy had been missing since 9 p.m. Saturday. The boy found a beach house Sunday morning near the Nichols Canyon State Beach about a mile from where he had been originally lost.

The teen had been on a hike at Leo Carrillo State Beach, west of Malibu, according to a watch commander at the sheriff’s Malibu-Lost Hills station.

Boy Found After Getting Lost Overnight In Santa Monica Mountains:

The boy, later identified as Albert Tung, was camping with his father before deciding to go off and hike on his own.

Lt. Scott Chew of the sheriff’s Malibu-Lost Hills station said, “He came out of the mountains and knocked on the door. He’s a cross country runner, so he’s in pretty good shape.”

    He must be in great shape to have traveled an entire mile!

    Found a beach house? That doesn’t sound like being lost.

    I never cease to be amazed at how many amateur editors read this site and feel the necessity to comment on how the article was written and totally lose the intent of the article.

    Some of you need to get a life……

    I was in Leo Carrillo camping and everyone was looking for this boy. Glad he is safe but why would anyone go hiking at 9pm by himself? Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense
