MT. SAN GORGONIO (CBSLA.com) — Three hikers, who were reported missing over the weekend, were found in good condition Tuesday morning, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
A patrol helicopter spotted Ryan Shankles, Miguel DeLatorre and David Yoder around 10:15 a.m. in the area of North Fork Meadows.
“We had hope that they were looking for us. And then this morning, the first thing we did was build a bigger fire,” Shackles said. “We put it up on a peak, and we just continued all morning, burning, burning, burning.”
Search and rescue members began their search Sunday after a friend, who was originally with them before he fell ill, reported them missing when they didn’t return from their weekend hike in the San Bernardino Mountains, KNX1070’s Tom Reopelle reports.
