RAW: Father, son, guided out of backcountry by search and rescue Thursday
On June 14, 2012, the Mono County Sheriff Search and Rescue (SAR) Team responded to a call for help of two hikers who had lost their trail.
A father and his 17 year-old son from Ohio went on a day hike over Mammoth Pass to the Devils Postpile National Monument. While returning to their vehicle at Horseshoe Lake, they lost the trail and were not able to find their way back.
They called 911 and requested assistance. The Mono County Sheriff Search and Rescue Team responded, and via cellphone contact, were able to guide them to a trail and then down to the nearest trailhead at Reds Meadow Resort.
SAR Team members met them at the trailhead and transported them back to their vehicle.
