HAILEY, Idaho — Idaho Police said they are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing hiker from Park City.

The Blaine County Sheriff’s Office said they received information about a possible missing hiker in the Prairie Creek Area, north of Ketchum, Idaho around 1 p.m. Thursday.

When deputies arrived at the Prairie Creek trailhead, they found a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with the Utah license plate number: YOPABAG. Officials said the vehicle belongs to 64-year-old Fern L. Baird of Park City.

She was described as 5’5” and weighing 115 pounds. A description of her clothing was not provided. 

“Baird is an experienced hiker, but generally does not do technical hikes or mountaineering,” read a press release from the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office. 

Investigators determined Baird may have gone for a hike around 1 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 19 and never returned.

Approximately 20 search and rescue members and deputies began searching the area Thursday, but the search was suspended when it became dark.

The search resumed Friday and Saturday with air and ground crews, but Baird was not located.

Officials are asking anyone who was in the Prairie Creek area on or after Oct. 19, has seen Baird, or has any information about her to call Blaine County Emergency Communications at 208-788-5555.

At this time, they are not asking for volunteers to search the area.
