Missing Hikers In Remote Utah Found Safe
The Garfield County sheriff’s office says the hikers, a 26-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman, were found safe at about 10:45 p.m. Monday after being reported missing earlier in the day in a remote area near Escalante.
Garfield County sheriff’s office public information officer Denise Dastrup says the two reportedly went hiking together in the upper Escalante River area.
She says the man and woman dropped their car off Sunday at a trailhead and were hiking from an area in Escalante back to their car.
One of the couple’s parents reported them overdue after they failed to return home when expected.
Details of how they were found were not immediately available.
